Homework Help: Another egg drop project

  1. Sep 4, 2005 #1
    Hey, I know there are already many of this threads, but I checked them all out and none can help me in my project. Well, in my project I have limited amount of materials, and I have already tried out various designs with no success, so any help would be great. Here are the details:

    Drop altitude 15 meters.
    5 paper clips (2 large, 3 small)
    2 rubber bands
    1 30cm string
    4 flexible straws
    1 band aid
    2 tissue papers (regulation size sheets, no scent)
    1 30x30cm aluminium foil
    2fts of scoth tape (adhesive purpose only)
    2 half sheets of paper

    Design specification:

    • The design must allow easy opening and closing for egg inspection
    • Before the container is dropped, it must fit into a 30 cm. cubed box

    Thanks in advance :smile:

    These are all the same. Build a lightweight parachute, and a lightweight cushion for the egg. The other threads cover the same stuff.
