Architecture firm breaks a few eggs to help students

Sometimes in the quest for perfection, you have to break a few eggs. On Tuesday, Space Architecture and Design hosted an egg-drop fundraiser as part of St. Louis Design Week.

Teams worked to build a capsule that would protect an egg as it was dropped from 15 feet. Eggs that survived were dropped again from a greater height. A common school science project that teaches students about velocity, acceleration and design, money raised from the competition went to Adams Elementary School, which fielded a team of its own.

Here’s how the egg drop turned out.
