Three Rivers Festival 19th Annual Egg Drop

Pointing edit resizeNo yolk! This event at Science Central is going to be an Eggs-travaganza! We'll be debating which came first, the chicken or the egg, as we celebrate a variety of activities dedicated to both!

First, tell your friends and neighbors that there is an eggs-cellent price to get into Science Central. Just one buck will get you in the door at Science Central. This annual tradition is one of the best bargains around for Three Rivers Festival fun. And members, of course, get in free to Science Central.

Then join in the festivities for the Design Collaborative Egg Drop Competition, beginning at 1 p.m. Settle in to watch Design Collaborative’s Egg Drop Competition. Eggs will fly from the roof of Science Central to the ground below in contraptions specially designed to protect the eggs. It's anything goes, as contestants prepare flying machines ranging from melons loaded with eggs, to sky diving chutes, to giant pinwheels.

To help protect the “good egg” kids who turn out to watch the Egg Drop Competition, the Indiana Wayne Lodge Fraternal Order of Police will be on hand to distribute free bike helmets, provided by the NeuroSpine & Pain Center (while supplies last) and Hoosier Academies will be giving away free school supplies inside the popular science center.child greeting the chicken
