SPOKANE, Wash. - A growing tradition drew a big crowd Thursday morning at Westview Elementary.
The Annual Egg Drop started as a way to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering, and math.
It's a simple concept—design an egg survival chamber to keep the egg safe and un-cracked after a 75 foot drop.
The Spokane Fire Department helps out with one of their ladder trucks.
Teacher Tiffiny Santos said it's turned into a family affair.
“Parents come out. We have little brothers and sisters. It's second through sixth graders that participate so the kindergartners come out and watch. It's fun.”
Now the event has turned into a send-off of sorts for students right before the end of the year.
