The 2013 ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) will hold the annual Tri-Cities Egg Drop competition from 1 to 3 p.m., Saturday, March 23, at the Kingsport Town Center, formerly the Fort Henry Mall, in Kingsport.
The event is open to all ages and devices can be entered as individuals or as a team.
ASME holds this event annually around engineer’s week to promote the practical use of engineering, math and science skills. Most importantly, the event is a great afternoon of fun.
Teachers have used this event in the past as a class project for the sciences and have even held class room competitions before the event.
Registration is $6 for individuals and $10 for teams. Registration will open at noon on the competition day.
