#var:page_name# cover

Explore material science and the engineering design process by creating a capsule to protect an egg from a three-story drop! Civil and Environmental Engineer Alexander Wilson from Frazier Engineering will be onsite to assist! The cost of Engineering Time is included in general admission. It is located in Inventors Workshop in the Main Building.

This Engineering Time will be great practice for the STEM Trek Catapult Contest on the SALT Block Saturday, April 21st from 10 am – 2 pm. CSC will have a “Catapult Your Egg Crate Creation” contest for all! We challenge you and your family to create a cocoon for your egg that will help it survive a trip in a catapult for prizes. To fit into this year’s NC Science Festival theme, your creation must include one food item (other than the egg that CSC will provide).
