Our pal Erica Smith tweeted a play-by-play of the drops, and the dramatic “parachute removal” because the capsules were so well built, they weren’t breaking. The kids from Adams took home first place, Three Studios won second place, JEMA earned the “Golden Huevos” award, and HOK was the “Judges’ Favorite.”
Special thanks to all of our competitors. Because of their generosity, we raised $500 for Adams Elementary. Their students had a blast learning about science, design and architecture. (We have a stack of adorable thank-you notes to prove it.) Thank you also to Michael Allen for lending his personality as emcee, our judges for sharing their time with us, SystemAire for letting us use their lift for this tomfoolery, and Urban Chestnut Brewing Company for providing “creative juice” for the adult competitors.
