Egg Physics At Longview High School

        A few raw eggs risked their shell today, in the interest of science. A Longview High School physics class once again was embroiled in the humpty dumpty drill, trying to reduce the fall rate and cushion the impact of a falling raw egg,  using only paper, tape, and string.  Over 20 students participated in the exercise. Some made it and some didn't.

        "We had to learn how to make a shuttle for it to land without breaking but it could only weigh a certain amount so we had to use physics using momentum and impulse how hard it would fall" said LHS Junior Brittney Johnson.

     Not many of the eggs survived, and the students are refining their designs.
