I'm a senior in high school, and we were just assigned the famous egg drop project... Here are the rules/restrictions/guidelines that our teacher gave us: You will design a container for an egg that will keep the egg from breaking when dropped from a height of approximately 5 meters (we're dropping from the 2nd story window). We can use unlimited sheets of loose leaf paper, cotton balls, and scotch tape... These are the ONLY materials we can use for the entire project... Restrictions: -The design must allow easy opening and closing for egg inspection. -Before the container is dropped, it must fit into a 25-cm x 25-cm x 25-cm cube. -The egg must be raw, its shell uncoated. -The egg must survive the drop. -Designs with lower mass receive higher scores (i don't think this is an issue as much as actually getting the egg to survive LOL) So, how would you people design this container? I was thinking of possibly making a bowl out of paper just and cushion the inside with cotton balls.. on every side of the egg... and put a lid on it.. and on each side of the outside of the bowl... put a lot of folded paper.. so that it makes a look like an accordian on every side... to absorb impact... any input would be great How would you people design it?
