FORT WAYNE — Science Central’s 22nd annual Egg Drop, presented by Design Collaborative, is set for Sunday, July 11, at Science Central, 1950 N. Clinton St., Fort Wayne.

Held as part of the Three Rivers Festival, the event will see eggs flung from Science Central’s roof, housed in contraptions designed to protect them.

There is no fee to participate in the event, which is open to all ages. Registration the day of the event will begin at 12:30 p.m., with the event starting at 1 p.m.

At the conclusion of the event, prizes will be awarded in several categories. A grand prize will be handed out in each age group to the contestant whose contraption successfully protected their egg.
