The 'main event' was an egg drop competition. Teams were asked to drop eggs from 4 meters up without cracking or breaking them upon landing. They were allotted 20 minutes to design and create their contraption using only shredded paper, duct tape and aluminum foil. They narrowly missed out on placing first.
