Objective: Design/construct container to safely land a raw egg when dropped onto pavement from top of bleachers. Materials: Standard Toothpicks, Standard Straight Drinking Straws, Standard Sewing Thread, Cardboard, Masking Tape Requirements: Egg cannot crack. Container mass < 30 grams without egg Must be pre-made where one is able to put the egg given by the teacher into the container. My considerations: I am allowed to make a parachute if I would like. I do not know if this is feasible with the given materials. If this is possible, could someone give me insight as to how to approach making a parachute with these materials? If I do not make a parachute, then my intent must be to distribute the impact as much as possible, since I cannot lessen the impact. Therefore I am considering just using 30 grams of masking tape to make a huge sphere to put around the egg. Would this be a bad idea? Does anyone have suggestions for the best way to approach this?
