2.97 "Design-a-palooza" was offered for the first time during IAP 2008. The class encouraged students to develop their own design processes through several design challenges.
The first challenge asked students to design a device which would protect an egg dropped 21 stories from the top of MIT's Green Building. The device also needed to drop as quickly as possible without compromising the egg.
