Campers hatch a plan in engineering egg drop

Lancer Engineering campers put the finishing touches on their apparatus that will carry their egg from the third floor of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation to the ground.Lancer Engineering campers put the finishing touches on their apparatus that will carry their egg from the third floor of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation to the ground.

Sydney Ryan may have had a slight advantage over her fellow campers.

The 12-year-old has a knack for engineering and builds race car tracks for her brothers and boats at home using found materials.

So, it’s no surprise that when tasked with the challenge to bring an egg safely to the ground from three storeys up, Ryan had a plan.

“We are trying to make a bird’s nest and have a base with a spongey-kind of foam material, a layer of paper and then a web of tight string that goes on either side of the egg,” Ryan said, who will be going into Grade 8 in the fall.
