Area Science Students Take A Crack At Engineering

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Area science students took a "crack" at engineering Friday in an annual egg drop competition.

Sixth grade students at Landon Middle School took part in the 7th annual egg drop Friday.

A staff member was lifted 30 feet in the air, where he dropped the students' wrapped, covered and cased raw eggs at a target, hoping that their one-of-a-kind safety device would keep their egg safe during the fall.

Their score for the day was then based on an equation, with the lowest non-zero score deemed the winner.
