Great egg race rules

24 Mar 2018

The Great Egg Race is on Tuesday 27th March 2018. We look forward to seeing the amazing egg mobiles which your children have worked so hard to create. Eggs will be carried on a mobile that your children design and build themselves. The mobile can be of any shape or size and we are encouraging children to be as creative as possible. The egg-mobile needs to be able to roll/move, either battery powered or with the help of the force of gravity. 

We will be awarding prizes to the most beautiful, most original and greatest distance travelled.

Please see below the rules that have to be followed.

Rules of the Great Egg Race

1. The egg-mobile must carry a chicken’s egg.
2. The egg must be hard boiled.
3.The egg-mobile is to be designed and built out of school.
4. As far as possible, the egg-mobile must be made without help from grown ups.
5. You may work on your own, in a pair, group or family, but the egg-mobile may only be entered for one class race.
6. Each egg-mobile will have an independent run on the course.
7. No mains electricity may be used to power or move your egg mobile.
8. Batteries are allowed.
9. No living creature may be used as an egg-mobile.
10. If the egg-mobile uses its own source of power, it will be released from a slope. If it uses another source of power e.g. air, battery, it will start from a flat surface.
11. Once your egg mobile leaves the start, you may not push it, pull it, control it or re-start it.
12. Please do not use any glass in your design.
13. Each class has their own race. There are 3 winning categories for each class:
The most beautifully decorated
The most original design
The greatest distance travelled

14. The judges’ decision is final.
