Subsea Engineering students from University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering recently partnered up with Memorial Elementary School in an effort to bring hands-on engineering experience to primary school children.

The group, led by graduate student Fatemeh Zamanian, spent several hours with fourth and fifth grade students teaching them the principles of engineering and physics by way of an 'egg drop' competition. After learning basic engineering concepts, students created encasements to protect eggs when dropped off a second-story balcony.
