Creative Eggsploits

SVEC was excited to join in for Suwannee Pineview Elementary’s annual egg drop last month. The drop is a favorite event for the students and tasks them with creating a protective carrier that can keep a raw egg from cracking when dropped about 55 feet from a raised bucket truck.

Children draw on science and creativity to come up with a wide variety of protective materials, such as popcorn packaging, Jell-O cushions, and grocery bag parachutes. The tradition started 27 years ago with SVEC lineworker Jay Chambliss and continues to be a beloved event at the school.
