Egg-straodinary distances

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Scouts are to create a vehicle in which to propel and egg to ensure its safety and usability when it comes to rest. They have 45 minutes to create the vehicle, refine it and propel it from a given point the furthest. The winner is the one who reaches the furthest distance but the egg must be retrievable and able to be broken into a cup or, even better, cooked for an egg sandwich!


Eggs, bamboo canes, string, baking paper, newspaper and lots of tape!
