ID sophomores successfully avoid ‘egg on their face’

Sophomore industrial design major Charles Quehl readies his cable car to scoop up an egg and head toward the target during the “Egg in the Hole” challenge held March 2.

This year’s egg assignment — unique among art and design colleges — required designing and building a rubber-band-powered mechanism that, after scooping up the egg, dropped it into a hole in a piece of toast contained in a frying pan. Thirty ID sophomores participated in the event to the cheers of the MIAD student body and faculty. The classroom assignment aims to foster students’ problem-solving skills and help them experience the challenges inherent in new product design.
