Egg Drop Challenge, Igloo Build, Take Apart Day

Igloo Build - Learn the inside scoop of building a simple-yet-elegant igloo and other snow dwellings from expert Dr. Bert Yankielun. Come experience Igloo Build, one of the longest-running traditions at the Museum. Learn how to build an insulated, sturdy house, strong enough to support the weight of a polar bear.

Egg Drop Challenge - Will a raw egg survive the harrowing 18-foot plunge over the second story balcony? Design a container at home or at the Museum from noon to 2:00 pm that will protect the egg from breaking. Beginning at 2:00 pm, it's "eggs away" as you launch your egg and container over the balcony.

Take Apart Day - Ever wonder what’s inside the household appliances you use every day? Join us and explore the “guts” of VCRs, toasters, cameras, and toys. You’ll find gears, cams, linkages, speakers, motors, and other components that work together to form complex mechanical and electrical machines.
