Twenty-five teams competed in the Egg Drop at MSOE this year, including a team from a local TV program called Real Milwaukee. It was a record-setting year: 11 eggs survived the fall, including Team Real Milwaukee’s egg. (Their eggshell cracked, but the egg stayed intact so we considered them winners.)

The Egg Drop kicked off MSOE’s annual St. Patrick’s Week celebration. St. Pat is the patron saint of engineers, so MSOE sets aside an entire week each year to celebrate with a number of events and competitions for the students, including the egg drop competition, a scavenger hunt, Engineering Olympics, ceremonial tie-cutting, a dance and more.
