Okay, I am totally baffled here. For our final project in Algebra we have one class period to build an egg drop carrier. The egg will be dropped from 8 feet, and we have VERY LIMITED materials. - 8 Straws - 1 6x6 Piece of Thick Paper - 3 Tissues - 2 ft. of Masking Tape Another rule is that we can't really build around the egg, because we have to take it out at the end of the building period. On "drop day" we only get a small piece of tape to close the egg inside the carrier. Now, this project has a bit of a competitive edge for me, because my friend and I would love to get extra credit, and more importantly, we really would like to beat *cue teenage drama* my ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend. My brother and I have tried several designs over the weekend, we tried suspending the egg inside a cube, putting the egg in a paper cone inside a straw-triangle, and just doing some bizarre things with straws. Our building day is tomorrow and any help would really be appreciated. Thanks a lot!
