Academic Fair and Egg Drop

Calling all curious kids and Humpty Dumpty heroes…

Are you ready for the Academic Fair and Egg Drop? (flyer)

The 2016 Academic Fair and Egg-Drop Contest will be held on Wednesday, October 19th.

The Academic Fair is like a science fair, because students complete projects and present them at the Fair. However, it’s open to more subjects, including history, health, engineering, literature, architecture, geography, science, and more. To complete a project, children must come up with a question about a favorite topic, figure out a way to answer that question, and then present what they’ve learned.

Can you figure out how to drop an egg from a three-story window without letting it crack? Then why not design an egg-drop vehicle and try it out at this year’s Egg-Drop Contest? We will stage the egg drop right after lunch on the day of the Academic Fair and then display the egg-drop vehicles in the evening during the Fair.

Both events are open to Irving School students in all grades, kindergarten through fifth. To participate in this year’s Academic Fair or the Egg-Drop Contest – or both – please fill out the registration form.
