Students walking in front of Education-Engineering ComplexThe 33rd Annual UAB American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Egg Drop Contest

The Brent Newman Memorial Egg Drop Contest will return on Friday, April 5, 2024, with up to 700 area students attempting to achieve what seems impossible—dropping raw eggs from the top of Education-Engineering Complex (EEC) without breaking the eggs.

The objective is to inspire engineering thought and design in students. Participants will be asked to design apparatuses that will protect a raw egg from breaking when dropped from the top of the three-story building. Entries will be judged on engineering thought and creativity, mass of the apparatus, and the ease with which the egg is loaded into the apparatus.
