Family Design Day: The Great Boston Egg Drop

Will your egg survive the drop? In the February edition of Family Design Day, families will be challenged to design and build a structure that will protect an egg when dropped from a height of 12 Feet! This classic exercise from Architecture and Engineering education, the Egg Drop requires nothing but a willingness to try, fail, and try again!

This Family Program is designed for parents and children 6 – 14 years old, a maximum ratio of 1 adult per 3 children will be required. Tickets are $8 per person, children and adults. BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through the BSA Space entrance and come up the Green Stairs. Program begins promptly at start time.

Family Design Day Programs encourage children and adults to observe, explore, and design together. In these hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design through exhibit tours, walking tours, or slide shows, and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and Design Educators lead the activities focused on the built bnvironment of Boston and the world.
