Travelers' Egg Drop
Team Travelers engineered systems to package eggs safely for the drop off the school roof. The students did an exceptionally good job as roughly 2/3rds of the eggs made it to the ground safely.  This was a very popular learning experience.

Snack today is either raspberries or blueberries.

There are over 200 different known species of raspberries but only 2 species are grown on a large scale.  The people of Troy, in modern-day Turkey, were the first to note an appreciation of the raspberry fruit.  4 A.D. saw the first writings on the cultivation of raspberries.

Raspberries are a low calorie wonderful source of vitamin C, containing 40 percent of a person’s daily needs.

Because of the high amount of antioxidants in blueberries, it is thought that they may help prevent damage caused by cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Blueberries are grown commercially in 38 states.  Maine was the leading producer of wild blueberries, harvesting 91.1 million pounds of wild blueberries in 2012. The peak season for fresh blueberries runs from mid-June to mid-August.
