    Trial and error is a time tested technique! :)

    What qualities of the parachute/egg system do you think are important to the problem at hand?

    Freshman at my highschool do this. Are you allowed to use any other materials? A lot of people tie balloons to it. On the ovular suspension module you should stuff as much toilet paper as you can in there to cushion the blow.
