Datil Egg-Drop

Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Ricky Chavez

On April 13, Datil El­e­men­tary held its an­nual Egg-Drop con­test and Easter Egg hunt. The egg drop con­test is an ac­tiv­ity in which the stu­dents de­sign some kind of space craft that would de­liver their Egg Astro­naut back safely to Earth from a des­ig­nated drop zone. This year mem­bers from the Que­mado Dis­trict of So­corro Elec­tric came with their Boom truck to drop the egg crafts from about a height of 50-60’. A big Thanks to Rick Wil­liams and Lane Buguy­ong, for their as­sis­tance and sup­port of our stu­dents. This year proved to be one of the best in de­signs I have seen in my 33 years of con­duct­ing this ac­tiv­ity with our stu­dents.

Af­ter lunch, the stu­dents dyed and col­ored ap­prox­i­mately 155 eggs for our school Easter Egg hunt. This was done with the help of Hop-WithCops, from the Ca­tron County sher­iff's Dept. A BIG THANKS to Ian Fletcher and Amanda Lan­drum for their as­sis­tance and sup­port.
