I've been assigned the infamous egg drop project, and have been brainstorming as many ideas as possible. However, I have many restrictions, and the one I am having the most trouble with is size. My container cannot be any larger than 4"x4"x6", though it must protect the egg from a fall of approx. 10 m, or off the backside of the bleachers. I am not allowed to use common packing materials including styrofoam, padding, or any thick liquids or jellies. :uhh: I have read some other posts on this forum, and attempted making a container out of straws. Unfortunately, I also have to be able to put the egg in the project the day it is due in class, so there needs to be easy accessibility. The straw container also ended up way too big, and was a wash. If anyone has any creative ideas I would be most thankful for your suggestions!
