Students design egg parachutes


Keisuke Shimizu, a seventh-grader at Buckeye Valley Middle School, drops an egg with a parachute he made during the Delaware Area Career Center’s Hands On Science summer camp Thursday afternoon. Shimizu was one of more than a dozen student to drop eggs with various contraptions designed to keep the egg from breaking. Students were taken 30 feet in the air in a fire service ladder where they dropped their contraptions. Some contraptions were complex, like Shimizu’s with parachutes and other projects were simply and egg in a cardboard box wrapped in cotton balls and shaving cream.
