Students at Clallam Bay Elementary balance eggs for the first day of spring

Spring Eggs

The 2nd and 3rd grade class at Clallam Bay Elementary have a tradition of balancing eggs on the first day of spring. Because the eggs are raw it takes determination to get them to balance. Most of the students were able to balance their egg.

You can balance an egg on any day of the year -- it's an urban legend that you can only do it on the equinox :) The Earth's tilt in respect to the sun has no affect on gravity.

i did this when i was in school.. if i remember correctly it has something to do with the tilt of the earth on those two days. the first day of spring and first of fall. i believe you can do it around those days but those are the best days to do it..
