Trafalgar Middle School Grade 7 teachers put out their annual challenge to young minds with the egg drop.

Students were asked to devise a contraption that would allow an egg to fall three stories without cracking. Students came up with all kinds of creative ways to protect the egg — most involving parachutes.

On Tuesday afternoon the finalists were tossed off the school’s roof much to the delight of the entire Grade 7 class waiting to see the outcome.
