The Oneonta Boys and Girls Club is excited to announce an Egg Drop Competition.  Here are the details: This challenge is to create a container or device to hold an egg to drop from various heights.  This competition is for children in 3rd-8th grade.  The drop day is April 17th and is at the Club, 70 River Street, Oneonta, but you do not have to be present to win. The Club asks that at this time, only children come to the drop day as the Club has COVID restrictions to follow.  For any questions, please call Jennifer at 607-432-1133


1. Egg drop containers can be constructed of any materials except metal, glass or other material that will shatter. NO helium balloons.

2. The container should not be more than 30” x 30” x 30 and should not weigh more than 4 pounds.
