El­e­men­tary, mid­dle and high school stu­dents are in­vited to demon­strate their in­ge­nu­ity and sci­ence skills in a se­ries of con­tests. Com­peti­tors will see if their egg can sur­vive the fall when their container takes a three­story drop from a cherry picker in the “Drop It” com­pe­ti­tion. There will also be a “Launch It” com­pe­ti­tion, where par­tic­i­pants will see if their bot­tle rocket will blast off or fiz­zle out. Bridges will be built, float­able boats will be crafted and roller coast­ers will op­er­ate as stu­dents com­pete for prize money, awarded to first through fourth place win­ners in each cat­e­gory. The com­pe­ti­tion will be judged by the Florida En­gi­neer­ing So­ci­ety. Free. 4801 Dre­her Trail North, West Palm Beach. 561-370-7710 or www.sfs­ciencecen­ter.org.
