This summer the spaceship Pathfinder will land on Mars on July. 
Instead of braking down with rockets, it will land by bouncing
down on airbags surrounding the spacecraft.  Students can
simulate that landing by packing a raw egg so it will land safely
when dropped one story onto concrete.  Here at the NJ State
Museum we intend to do that in our day camp.  We have five one
week sessions (ages6-9) beginning July 7.  We would like to do
this as a contest with other museums, classes, etc somewhere else
in the U.S.  Do you have a group that would like to participate?
