On 25 May 2001, canny staff members
faced off cannier students in the fifteenth annual NCAR/Local Elementary School
Egg Drop. Fifty egg-bearing devices were pitched off the A Tower of the Mesa Lab
to see which entries, through savvy aerodynamic engineering, could beat gravity
and bear their cargo unsplatted to safe landing. SCD's Brian Bevirt brought his
eminent MC abilities to the event, titled "2001: A Space Odd-egg-sey,"
while SCD's Jennifer Griffin hurled eggs with style.
