Tension is running high here at the Atlantic BT Center across from Macy’s Crabtree Valley mall today. Competitors in the second annual Atlantic BT Egg Drop Contest are trying to inconspicuously walk by competitor desks where a variety of engineering, art and egg drop science is on display.Some egg drop engineering is similar.”Might be some high level egg drop espionage going on,” is how Atlantic BT’s founder summarized how similar shock absorbing devices got used on several devices.  When this reporter asked Jon how he judged his chances he said, “We have to take it one drop at a time, but the Eggstinguisher is ready to take the punishment of multiple drops.”

Rules established at Atlantic Business Technology’s Inaugural Egg Drop Contest are strictly enforced. “Do you see any rules violations,” Jon asked this reporter. Tensions are running high this year given the high bar set by Chutzpah and Monster Box last year.

What’s Next?
Competitors will try and find some way to contain the unique combination of nerves, worry and concern between now and Atlantic BT’s 2nd Egg Drop Contest dropoff. I was impressed with the engineering prowess, artistic skill and crazy talent on display at Atlantic BT’s 2nd Egg Drop Contest.Before leaving the Atlantic BT Center I asked Creative Director Eileen Allen how it felt to be the only female competitor, “I’m not the only female competitor, Addie’s Carry On is competing too.”

Bonne chance to all competitors in their droppings.* Odds are strictly for entertainment, please don’t bet and drive. Odds were determined by calling a secret number in Vegas and starting the conversation with, “the eggs are dropping again.”
