Each spring, CU Boulder students celebrate Engineering Days, or E-Days, with a series of contests where students apply their engineering skills in fun, exciting, and creative ways. E-Days is hosted by the University of Colorado Engineering Council and is sponsored by various societies and corporations. This week-long festival includes some new events and old classics.
The Egg Drop is an all-time favorite. The event challenges students to create a device that will protect an egg that will be dropped from the engineering office tower's eighth story. Prizes are given for the biggest crowd pleaser, the best use of an engineering principle, the most destroyed contraption with an unbroken egg, the largest volume entry, and the dean and department faculty's top choices. Check out a video of the Egg Drop in full swing.
