It's a combination that some might think could be tempting fate.
Students, eggs and all the ingredients needed to make a rocket.
But this isn't the latest reality TV show, instead it's the challenge facing students taking part in the UK's largest model rocket competition.
The winners will go up against teams from the UK, Japan and France in the international finals later this year. Liz Summers stood at a safe distance in Stow Maries airfield in Essex to see what's involved.
More than a million people have downloaded a mobile phone game which is helping researcher's studying dementia.
The project saw Cambridge-based Alzheimer's Research UK team up with scientists from the University of East Anglia, UCL and a telecoms company to develop the game.
Playing the game will help our scientists understand in detail how our brains navigate space. It's reckoned that by playing the game for just 2 minutes generates the same amount of data it would take researchers 5 hours to obtain.
Find out more about the game below.

Students have found a parachute from a high altitude balloon they sent into the Near Space region of the earth's atmosphere.
Pupils at Fakenham Academy in Norfolk launched the balloon from Elsworth in Cambridgeshire, and it rose to more than 26,000 metres.
The balloon burst, as planned, when it reached high altitude and the parachute with a computer and camera attached came down at Bourne near Peterborough.
The billionaire entrepreneur James Dyson has been in Cambridge to open a new centre for the University's budding inventors.
The £8m Dyson Centre for Engineering Design will provide 1,200 students with the space and equipment to build prototypes, test inventions and collaborate on cutting edge research.
Scientists at Cambridge university have developed a controversial technique which allows them to keep an embryo growing in a laboratory for up to 13 days.
The legal limit in the UK is 14 days after fertilisation.
Two international teams of scientists, including British researchers, were able to maintain living embryos under lab conditions for up to day 13 of development.
They say it'll allow them to study the development of an embryo more closely.
"Implantation is a milestone in human development as it is from this stage onwards that the embryo really begins to take shape and the overall body plan are decided.
This new technique provides us with a unique opportunity to get a deeper understanding of our own development during these crucial stages."
A global conservation hub at the University of Cambridge that's named after Sir David Attenborough is being celebrated in style.Read the full story ›
Sir David Attenborough is in Cambridge today to open a new campus which he hopes will help save the planet.
The hub will be home to more than 500 conversation experts who'll research ways of tackling climate change and protecting species around the world.
The future of our life on Earth is dependent on the natural world – for the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we use – and for the feelings we have of awe and wonder at nature’s extraordinary riches.
In this remarkable age we are learning more and more about the intricacies of our dependence on nature.
Yet our natural world is threatened as never before. The threats are both numerous and interrelated, and no one institution, however effective, can hope to address them all alone. It is for this reason that the work of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative is so exceptional.
By bringing together leaders in research, practice, policy and teaching, we stand the greatest chance of developing the solutions required to save our planet.
