On May 19, engineers from Service & Technology Corporation (STC) visited Ranch Heights Elementary School to talk to the students about engineering and challenged the students to develop a vessel that would protect an egg from being dropped from the roof at the school. The Humpty Dumpty Challenge vessels were judged on most colorful, best design plan, smallest, most creative, and best use of recycled materials.

STC Director of Engineering Doug Boudreaux was joined by chemical engineers Matt Jones and Thomas Gilbert in conducting the program. Thirty-one students entered containers into the event and submitted written design plans. Nineteen students had eggs which survived the fall in their containers.

STC was founded on March 27, 1986, in Bartlesville by K. Vasudevan. It is a consulting engineering firm known for a variety of projects, particularly in the chemical process, oil and gas, and pipeline industries. Thanks to Service & Technology Corporation for sponsoring this event and funding prizes which were awarded to the students.
