Another egg drop project

  • #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.
Materials:
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.
