Operation Egg Drop

Posted: January 27, 2013 in Being Silly with Mom and Dad, Cub Scouts

January 8, 2013: Our Cub Scout Pack hosted an egg drop event. Each boy was given a kit of materials in December that they were allowed to use to construct a contraption to hold a raw egg and keep it safe from a 10 foot drop. The kit of materials was all they could use with the exception of 20 inches tape and glue. The Pack gave each scout a raw egg during the January Pack meeting and 15 minutes to put the egg in their contraption before the event started. The boys did such a great job! All the contraptions looked great! Z and his dad built a super cool contraption and it was named “Over Protective Mama”. Basically it looked like a mama chicken.

Our Cubmaster dressed like Albert Einstein and there was construction gear all around the room. The evening was a huge success! Z’s egg contraption kept is raw egg intact! Great team work Z and hubby!

Hubby dropped all the contraptions that evening. He did a great job and before each egg dropped the boys did a countdown.
