Successful Egg Drop held by QES Quartzsite Elementary School (QES) held an Egg Drop experiment on October 3, 2019. 7th and 8th grade students from Ms. Anderson's class were given 10 items including pipe cleaners and cardboard. Their mission was to build a contraption that would land an egg safely. The lesson was a part of their astronomy unit. Mr. Lueker assisted the students with deploying their egg drop landing crafts from atop of the gym building. 10 of the 12 eggs landed safely! Congratulations! Mayor Norm Simpson promoting Buck Connors Western Days Saturday at Salome's Dick Wick Hall Parade.
