The purpose of the event is to encourage mechanical engineering thought and design. The students were required to design an apparatus that would protect a raw egg being dropped from the roof of the Business - Engineering Complex. That's three stories! Each entry is judged on three categories - creativity, aparatus mass, and ease of use. Ease of use means, can our judges put an egg in the contraption in less than a minute!
We won't mention who's shells cracked under pressure, but below are the future engineers who landed sunny side up:
Middle School Division
1st - RF Bumpus Middle School - Team 26
2nd - Highlands School - Team 71
3rd - Highlands School - Team 73
High School Division

2nd - Montevallo High School - Team 100
3rd - Montevallo High School - Team 103
