FFYF: Egg Drop Edition

Good Friday, Heroes! Today we are participating in our very first egg drop contest. Very exciting. The challenge is to create a container that can hold an egg and protect it from cracking in a fall. The Captain’s first idea involved tin foil and plastic wrap. 3 or 4 broken eggs later I told him, “Dude, that’s not going to work.” He went back to the drawing board and came up with a box that is padded and weighted (so that the bottom will land first) and all ready for it’s maiden voyage. It should be fun to see what all of the kids came up with!

Welcome to the May 13, 2011 edition of fun for your friday. Jennifer Saksa presents Convert your Favorite Movie Line to a Ringtone posted at NCH Software Blog.
