BEAUFORT, SC (WSAV) – Some local elementary students put gravity to work.
River Ridge Academy’s Young Astronauts Club carried out their 4th Annual Egg Drop Challenge.
The Bluffton Fire District gave a helping hand by using their ladder truck to drop students’ egg capsule projects from overhead.
The projects first faced a fall from 25 feet. The projects with unharmed eggs then moved to a 75 foot fall and finally a 100 foot fall.
Some students’ projects survived un-cracked, while others were left with a yolky mess.
According to Beaufort County School District officials the Egg Drop Competition challenges the students engineering and design skills.
