Bettendorf —How do you keep an egg from breaking after falling from a 20 foot balcony? Egg Drop Kerplop! The Family Museum is pleased to present the 15th Annual Egg Drop Kerplop challenge on Saturday, March 31, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Teams are given building materials, one raw egg, and as much as two hours (from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm) to build an impact-resistant container for the egg. When the time is up, Family Museum staff will drop the contained eggs from the balcony in the Family Museum’s Great Hall. Each team whose egg remains intact will win, but everyone gets a prize! Egg Drop Kerplop is a family event and a wonderful way for kids and parents to work together on a creative and truly challenging project! This activity is included with paid admission or Family Museum Membership.
