Egg drop competition held at the Cradle of Aviation Museum

Today, the Cradle of Aviation Museum is celebrating the return of Spring with its annual egg drop competition.



News 12 Long Island was there with the students who designed a device to protect their precious eggs from the sudden impact of a fall from the museum balcony.



The egg drop competition is opened to students in grades 1-8. The students have to complete their devices, and they also have to bring their own eggs.



Teachers that book a field trip and registered students for the egg drop also receive a complimentary lesson to help the class prepare the most efficient egg drop devices!
