No yolk! On Sunday, Science Central is going to be an Egg-Stravaganza!
Sunday admission to Science Central in Fort Wayne will be just $1 per person, as WAJI presents their Majic 95.1 Dollar Day at Science Central, a long-standing festival tradition.
At 1 p.m., the Design Collaborative Egg Drop Competition begins, and eggs will fly from the roof of Science Central to the ground below in contraptions specially designed to protect the eggs. It’s anything goes, as contestants prepare flying machines ranging from melons loaded with eggs to giant pinwheels to convey an egg to the ground.
This competition is open to all ages, and there is no fee to enter. Pre-registration may be done by calling Misty James at Design Collaborative, (260) 422-4241, or registration can be done on-site in advance of the event. Pre-registered participants will receive a free pass to Science Central.
The Fort Wayne Quaker Steak & Lube Restaurant will also be on hand at the event, offering free samples of their chicken entrees, while supplies last.
To help protect the “good egg” kids who turn out to watch the Egg Drop Competition, the Indiana Wayne Lodge Fraternal Order of Police will be on hand to distribute free bike helmets, provided by the Neuro, Spine & Pain Center, while supplies last.
And, Science Central’s July Sponsor of the Month, the Indiana 529 College Saving Plan, will also be on hand to provide information on saving for college, helping create nest eggs for college for Indiana’s future college students.
