The Great Balfron Egg Drop

Last week we challenged the Scouts to build something to carry an egg safely from the McLintock hall down to the car park two floors below when it was thrown out of the window. There was lots of cardboard, scrumpled newspaper and sellotape used in a very creative session. We had parachutes and cushioned boxes within boxes...and all but one of the eggs survived.

The second challenge was to get the egg safely down and to travel the furthest away from the building...the winner was a giant cardboard airplane which glided nicel down to 15 feet away from the building.
