Twenty two students participated in Mr. Pool's annual Egg Drop on Wednesday at the school in Blunt. This is an annual event Mr. Pool has done for over 25 years starting when he was a teacher in Montrose.
"We have a little talk about gravity, force, acceleration and mass before we start. Then each child brings their creation forward and explains what they did to protect the egg from breaking. The students count down from three and Mr. Pool tosses it high into the air. The creation is then taken to the table to be checked by the teachers. If it survives, they are given a treat, this year a juice.
An overall winner is chosen by the Blunt staff and this year 2nd grader Deacon Irvine gained the honor of most creative for his NASA Peanut Butter Spaceship. "The kids look forward to this each year and I was very impressed with some of the things they came up with. It encourages creativity and out of the box thinking."
