The challenge pit these students against five other teams at the second annual Broadcom MASTERS competition. But that project would count for only one-quarter of each contestant’s score here at the finals.

This time, the car was nearly destroyed as a portion of the truck pierced the car’s windshield — right where the driver’s head would have been.
Just like that second crash, not every egg drop turned out well.
The videos showed crashes created under laboratory conditions.
The vehicles contained no real drivers or passengers.
