FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – You were not hallucinating if you saw eggs falling from the sky Sunday in downtown Fort Wayne.
In the 23rd annual Egg Drop, eggs fell 90 feet from the roof of Science Central to the ground below, where containers made by contestants softened the blow and tried to keep the egg from cracking.
A grand prize was given in each age group to the contestant whose device successfully protected their egg. In case of a tie, the museum planned to give the prize to the contestant with the lightest-weight device. Other prizes included: Most Creative, Most Scientific, Most Devastating Crash, and Most Devastating Crash to Survive.
In-person registration began at 12:30 p.m., with the drop starting at 1 p.m. The official Egg Drop rules are on Science Central’s website.
It was free to participate or attend.
