Egg-cellent Fun!

Our meeting's organizer--Kelly S.
When we showed up for Science-Nature Club in late August with our contraptions for the egg drop, we were not expecting all of the other fun things Kelly S. had planned for us. 
The experimenters with their egg-drop contraptions.

We broke eggs and identified their different parts. We examined some eggs to determine which had been boiled and which ones hadn't--without breaking them. And, we got to examine an egg that had been soaked in vinegar. It was translucent (and squishy!). With a flashlight we could see its yolk.
The paper and Scotch tape contraption's result.

The egg-drop contraptions were dropped from the top of the house onto concrete. Some survived and some didn't.  Surprisingly, the one made only of paper and Scotch tape survived with only a crack.
Walking on eggs.

The kids also got to stand on a dozen eggs and then the cartons of eggs were placed like stepping stones and they got to walk on them. And they didn't crack! (No, they were not boiled eggs.)

Lots of fun was had and we decided we would like to do another egg drop to perfect our contraptions!
