Egg Drop Competition

By -

Dead silence ! Splat ! Cheers.

This wave of sounds came several times Tuesday afternoon on 21st of December , in front of Computer department, as the upcoming engineers of EME competed in an egg drop competition , hosted by ASME student chapter . The cold sunshine was pitiful on the fate of poor chicks, but some defeners stood up !!

The mission was to engineer a protective contraption, and then use that contraption to safely drop a raw egg from the roof of Computer department … without breaking the egg. It was mandatory that it should be the eggs to kick the land first, after a two-story fall. Beyond that, points were added for hitting a target on the ground, number of parts of the device and weight. Four judges were responsible for declaring first, second and third-place winners, best design award and the best splash award.

In fact, a couple of eggs survived the two-story fall but a gigantic number of students participated with an unprecedented level of competitive spirit along their smashing designs and a number of unimates for buckup of the saviours. Reputable Dean Brig.Akhtar Nawaz , HOD Mechanical Engineering M A. Khan, Senior professor Rehan A.Khan and other faculty members joined the event.

It was one of the outflank event of the month and a great effort by the organizers, ASME student chapter, EME. The Dean really appreciated the idea of such a healthy event. It was a pleasance just after the chaos of mids’.

    I really feel sad for poor eggs 🙁

    But still it was a great competition …especially to enhance the technical skills of future engineers 🙂
