Join the fun and learn a thing or two at the annual Tri-Cities ASME Egg Drop. Designed to promote engineering and science in the Tri-Cities community, it's also an excellent opportunity to encourage students to consider math, science, and other technical fields/disciplines as career options. This event is being organized by the Holston Section, ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers).

Objective: Participants are asked to protect an egg from a second story drop to keep it from SMASHING when it hits the ground. Accuracy of the drop, minimizing the weight of the protective device, and minimizing the number of components in the protective device are all factors in determining who wins.

All ages, including adults, are encouraged to participate.
