• 2024 ASME/AIAA Egg Drop Contest on April 7

    The ASME/AIAA Egg Drop competition is back at the Mariners’ Museum again! Build a device at home to test out your engineering skills on how to safely deliver a delicate payload to the ground from a roughly 2-story drop. We recommend that you build your egg drop devices in advance to bring to the event. We will supply the eggs. All devices will be dropped off the side of the USS Monitor Replica (weather permitting) – rain location is indoors. Please feel free to share this information for a little competition with friends and family!

    Date: Sunday, April 7 from 12:30pm-4:00pm

    Location: The Mariners’ Museum, 100 Museum Drive, Newport News, VA 23606

    Entry to the museum is free with the event.

    If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please e-mail Karen Berger and Amanda Chou at
