On April 8, 24 Isabella High School students participated in UAB’s 27th Annual Brent Newman Egg Drop Competition.

The event, which was sponsored and managed by the UAB School of Engineering chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, began in 1989 to promote engineering education and inspire the next generation of Alabama engineers.

The winners of UAB’s Elementary Most Creative were Jaiden Cummings and Charlee Kirland, fifth graders at IHS.
