What can you learn from 25 straws, 25” of masking tape and a raw egg? At JCS, we put all the Engineering brainpower to work, along with a dash of Fabrication, and stirred it up with a pinch of Finance and Purchasing for good measure to meet the challenge.
The teams were charged with the task of designing a delivery system that would protect a raw egg from breaking after it had been dropped in a free fall of 8 feet prior to hitting the floor. Even though all five teams wound up with scrambled eggs, the teams had some fun and learned the value of inclusion, innovation, and design simplicity. The group also learned that most learning comes from failure – encouraging “fast failures”.
Congratulations to team #5 formed by Marco Rodriguez, Robert Wilkie, Andrew Furnare, Andrew Schreiber, and Shauna Traxler who won the challenge by saving the most resources (12 straws and 1” of tape) during the exercise.
