The egg drop has become a sort of rite of passage for gangly fourth graders as they embark on their first journey into physics and math before they approach these subjects again later on in middle school and high school.
The egg drop is a test of intellect as much as it's a riotous good time. Learn how to make your own egg drop in this video and also get info on the actual physics of why this fragile egg won't break even when curled off a four-story building.
