Engineering Week Egg Drop Contest Spring 2014

Engineering Week 2014 took place February 16-22, 2014 and at the UA, this culminated in an Egg Drop Contest on Friday, February 21st. A large number of College of Engineering students participated in the competition that involved vision, planning and team work. For the contest, students designed contraptions to house eggs with the goal of avoiding egg breakage during a drop from the AME building, and they were required to adhere to a set of rules that forbid the use of any parachute devices. No eggs survived the descent intact, but a number of groups were more successful with their egg conveyers than others and emerged victorious. 


First place went to representatives of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) who included MSE senior Jeremy Hamilton and Ty'Dria Wright White (pictured below).

Second place
went to representatives of the Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) (pictured below).

Third place
went to representatives of Tau Beta Pi (pictured below).

The contest started at MSE where students planned and designed their egg conveyance systems. Participating students then migrated to AME for the official egg dropping.
