Vintage Hills Elementary School kindergartners, joined by dozens of their parents and supporters, took part in a class-wide egg drop assignment April 9.
Students spent their spring break building 'contraptions' designed to protect a raw egg during a one-story fall from the school roof. Protective devices included bubble wrap, boxes with foam peanuts, parachutes and even a baggie filled with blue Jell-O.
The assignment aimed to teach the young students about inventiveness, creative thinking, design, family collaboration and math, according to kindergarten teacher Jim McCarthy.
Thirty-seven of the 46 eggs survived the descent intact.
