Hannah Pucci had the idea for a new way of packaging ice cream when she was 11-years-old. A sixth-grader at the time, she was in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program at Rogers Park Middle School in Danbury, Connecticut. The class required her to come up with an invention and pitch it at the Connecticut Invention Convention. Her teacher encouraged the students to think of a problem, then think of an invention that could serve as a solution to that problem.
At first, Hannah was stuck to come up with an idea. Then, she saw her mother struggling to scoop ice cream into a cone and thought it would be easier to just pull out a preformed portion of ice cream and pop it into a cone. Voila! The concept for Egghead Ice Cream was born - individual egg-shaped ice cream scoops packed in an egg carton. This method avoids the hassle of scooping ice cream, offers multiple flavor varieties in one carton, and provides portion control.
