  • The Lincoln Elementary fifth grade students of Diane Lowery and Jamie Buckley hosted an egg drop contest before their Christmas Break. The goal of the egg-drop contest is to apply physics knowledge to the construction of an egg-protecting apparatus capable of providing a safe landing upon falling from the roof of the school building. The students drew up their blueprints for their own designs.
    The students and those watching the egg drop enjoyed watching the experiment and eagerly awaited the results of each drop.
    "We definitely have some engineers!" stated fifth grade teacher Diane Lowery.
