It’s the ultimate Science Center engineering challenge: can you design and build a contraption that will protect an egg from the fall after a 30 foot drop? You’ll have a chance to test your ingenuity. Each team will have the materials to draw out a concept, build it, and then test it on a small scale before trying it out for real.

This experience is free with admission!

Families are encouraged to work together as a team.

This activity is best for guests ages 6 and up.


  • One egg per team.
  • One contraption per team.
  • You may only use the materials provided to you by the Science Center.
  • In order for a contraption to pass the challenge, the egg must land safely in the landing zone without being cracked or broken.
  • The challenge cannot be completed by walking the egg over to the landing pad.
