Egg Drop and day 1 of Thrift Shop

Today was the first day of Thrift Shop at Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ).  This day is usually a Friday, with a half day of school.  We follow a half day schedule, which means each of the classes are about 25 minutes, so we have the full slate of classes over the course of a half day. 
Sometimes these half days will allow for other activities such as Science project day or field day.  Today it was Egg Drop day.  Each of our Middle School students had to design a container that would be able to hold a raw egg.  The idea is to have their container with the egg, drop from CAJ's third floor balcony and hopefully the egg would not break.  Any eggs that survived, would be cooked up and they can eat it.  Here are some pictures of the egg drop.

See the black box?  That's one of the containers.
Phew the egg survived!
Can you see the egg drop container?

This Thrift Shop the MS Band decided to prepare a Flash Mob.  Beginning at 12:15 pm, the first student began playing and others would continue to come and join.  It was fun to watch this happening.  There were a few cameras ready to video tape this, but I was up on the third floor balcony and video taped it.

It was a very busy day with lots of activity.  Saturday morning, I will be going to Thrift Shop to help out when the public is able to come and shop.  It'll be a busy four plus hours, but it will also be fun.
