egg drop competition

More than 20 students from our Environmental Science Workshop put their engineering skills to the test during the 19th annual Egg Drop competition this week. 

The event, hosted by the Public Works and Utilities Department and Public Library, is held annually as part of National Engineers Week. A total of 33 people, including City staff, registered to participate. 

Students were tasked with building a container that would protect their eggs from a 60-foot drop from the top of the Civic Plaza. 

This year’s winner was Daniel Guijosa. The young boy beat out professional engineers with a drop device that kept his egg intact and landed only a foot away from the target.
