Physics Project :D

okays, for physics ive got to devise a contraption which will protect a raw egg from ing while dropping 3 stories.

the devices must fit through a 1sqr foot rectangle, it does not have any maximum height, it cannot use packaging material or food/peanut butter/jello/gell

any ideas?

assuming one side is double of the adjacent sides, say one side is a, and the adjacent side is 2a, your maximum... or minimum height for the box must be 1 in order for your surface area to be 1.
