Save the egg!!

Yes, you read it right! An event where kids from different schools in Gothenburg are invited to save the falling egg from 7th floor in MC2 lab, Chalmers. The challenge here is to design creative solution to prevent an egg from cracking, when dropped from 15 meters height. There were sacrifice of lots of eggs throughout the day in our hallway! but all in the name of science. Award will be presented to the group based on smart, best looking solution and best presentation. Event was originally started in 2003, but since last 4 years it is held here in MC2. It was blissful to see the joyous, LOUD gathering of kids at the entrance hall

throughout the day.
