SBU Egg Drop Engineering Workshop. March 30th

Mar 30, 2024 11:00AM—12:30PM

Cost $15.00


Get ready for an egg-citing adventure at our Egg Drop Engineering Extravaganza!

Saturday, March 30th , 11 AM - 12:30 PM,

Egg Drop Engineering Workshop with Stony Brook University's Biomedical Engineering Society

Calling all young inventors and budding engineers—this program is your ticket to the ultimate challenge: designing and building a contraption that keeps an egg safe and sound when dropped from heights.

In this hands-on engineering exploration, kids will unleash their creativity as they embark on a mission to create the perfect egg protection device. Armed with a variety of materials, from cotton balls to cardboard, our junior inventors will brainstorm, design, and construct their ingenious contraptions. It's a crash course in problem-solving, physics, and imaginative thinking!

But the real fun begins when the contraptions are put to the test. Participants will experience the thrill of watching their creations take the plunge, hoping their egg survives the drop unscathed. It's a fantastic journey of trial and error, laughter, and, of course, a few egg-cellent surprises!

Join us for a day of engineering marvels, creative chaos, and a whole lot of egg-centric fun at the Egg Drop Engineering Extravaganza—where young minds crack the code to protect their precious eggs!
