SAVE THE DATE - DODGER EGG DROP - SEPTEMBER 1, 2018
The Goal is not to break Humpty by creating an apparatus that will keep a raw egg from breaking from a 6.5 Story Drop at Dodger Stadium. Scouts should design their apparatus for the egg drop at either home or at their meeting and must be sealed at Dodger Stadium after Inspection. Prizes are awarded for Dodger Spirit, Smallest Device and Best Design. Scouts are prohibited from using Parachutes, Balloons, Metal Containers, Liquids, Gels or Glass.
