Egg Drop 2010

Lexy and daddy worked hard on her Egg Drop Contraption for this year's contest. Lexy dubbed it the "Black Tulip." It's black drip line connected with drip line elbows and connected with zip ties and duct tape. The middle section is three athletic socks. One is tied to either end of the Tulip with one tied in the center between the socks at the top and the bottom. The egg is inside a ziplock sandwich baggie filled with packing peanuts. At the top sits a nice big fluffy garbage bag parachute. You see, this isn't our first time at the rodeo.

Yes, it is mighty! Rowr!

All the kids at Lexy's school bring their Egg Drop Contraptions in hopes that their fragile egg will survive being dropped from the roof of the school.

Teacher Collin has the Black Tulip and is carefully fluffing the parachute out.

Now I understand the story - hooray! Looks like Lex has a hat after all.
