Homework Help: Egg Drop Project Help

  1. Oct 4, 2011 #1
    Egg Drop Project Help!!!!

    I have to make a egg drop from approximately 25 meters. The egg has to be directly covered by:
    1 latex glove
    3 pieces of newspaper
    2 rubber bands
    1 piece of string (30cm)
    1 zip lock bag
    12 inches masking tape
    100 tooth picks
    glue only to connect bits and pieces.

    We can only use ONE of the following-
    Wire coat hanger
    Plastic coffee can lid
    Small Washers-no more than 20
    1 piece of cardboard
    10 packing peanuts
    10 straws
    3 toilet paper rolls(the brown thing in the center)

    Alright, the egg has to be raw, we can not use a parachute and I need a good grade on this to save my grade in the class.

    What do you think would be the best idea for the construction of this?
