The mission of the Cradle of Aviation Museum is twofold: to engage all ages in the exploration of our aerospace heritage by preserving and displaying Long Island’s contribution to air and space travel; and to inspire, motivate, and stimulate our youth to be the next generation of aerospace scientists and engineers. We achieve our mission through our growing exhibit collection and our ever expanding educational programs.
Egg Drop Competition
Can you save an egg from a one or two story fall?!
Celebrate the return of Spring with eggs and a year-round phenomenon—gravity!
Students will design a device to protect their precious cargo from the sudden impact of a fall from our museum balcony.
The Egg Drop Competition is open to students in grades one through eight. Have the devices completed upon your arrival. Eggs will be provided for you.
Teachers, when you book a field trip and register your students for the Egg Drop, you’ll receive a complementary lesson to help your class prepare the most efficient egg drop devices!
Free with Museum Admission.
