Egg drop project help

I have an egg drop project, in which we make a container on the ground that can cushion the fall of the egg. The limits are: 8 cm height max, and 45 x 45 cm box max area and the egg must not break even if it bounces out after hitting the container. It'll be dropped first from a height of 2 meters, then 4 meters. I got a 7 cm tall box and filled it with bubble wrap, and tried dropping it from 2 meters. Problem is, the egg bounces out every time and breaks when test out from 2 meters from . Is there any way I can prevent the egg from bouncing, such as putting something over the bubble wrap?

Have you tried popping the bubble wrap? Just a suggestion.

Put a thick layer of very sticky glue over the top layer of bubble wrap. Good luck!

Hard boil the egg first.

Have you tried filling the box with those small foam pellets you get in some packaging instead? It should prevent the bouncing.
