Episode 23: Great Egg Challenge! (a tradition on the tallship Pelican of London)

In a light hearted moment, the Darwin200 team take part in an important tradition on our tallship, the Pelican of London – the Great Egg Challenge!

The Darwin200 young scientists, trainee sailors, crew and staff were divided into teams, and tasked with the goal of building a structure to contain an uncooked egg to ensure that it remains intact when dropped from the mast onto the deck!

The various teams created many innovative designs! Some weird, some wonderful and some wacky!

Find out which design won!
