DO you prefer your eggs scrambled or splattered?

Kids at the local science club put eggs to better use when the local Science Club had an Amazing Egg Drop competition.

The kids had to develop their own contraptions using assigned materials to save an egg from a fall from the showgrounds grandstand.

The little scientists first brainstormed ideas and then each made a prototype.

After revising their design, the final products were ready to test with a lot of laughs and learning had by all.

Prizes were awarded for design, originality and successful protection of the egg.

Almost every one of the contraptions made by the Science Club kids saved their eggs from doom.

With school holidays fast approaching, kids can learn interesting facts while having fun by joining the Science Club for 2011.

Kids aged between five and 12 can participate in the Science Club that will explore many areas of science, including chemistry, biology, botany, astronomy, environmental science and palaeontology.

The kids, with the aid of a qualified scientist, will learn more through experiments and discussing scientific theories but most importantly by having fun. For more information call the Central Highlands Science Centre on 4987 6513.
