Engineering Students Launch Eggs To Learn
COLUMBIA - University of Missouri engineering students launched eggs on the Francis Quadrangle Friday. The college freshmen used the information they have learned in their classes to create one final project.
Over 200 students participated in the event as part of their freshman introduction course. They were split up into teams and asked to make an egg launcher that would shoot their eggs the farthest.
The students launched three eggs and were scored based on the creativity and design of the launcher and the distance the egg went. The judges for the event included Peer Advisors and engineering professors. The points were tallied up at the end of the event and the winning team was given a golden pan.
