First week of design school - Egg drop

Our first project was to design packaging for an egg - that would fit inside a box- to be mailed into the university from any postal region. Not very many were successful at this from memory, and there were a few issues with the local mail provider having to transport and deliver leaking boxes.

The project was scrapped the next year. Good memories, I enjoyed the challenge :slight_smile:

Since the School of Design at UC doesn’t break out into individual majors till the second year we did our intro to ID for the freshman this quarter. We brought in some upperclassmen to help out but the project was to design and build a robot out marshmallows and toothpicks and then the groups would each get a couple minutes to show off and sell their idea to the ID faculty.
