I'm a freshman in high school and we are doing an egg drop, but we have a very limited materials list.
Tape, glue, paper, plastic food wrap, plastic baggies, string, wood, aluminum foil, pipe cleaners, standard metal paper clips, garbage bag twist ties
the egg can not be built into the structure
can not be over 30cm cubed
must be a standard chicken egg not wrapped or coated with anything
the egg must be visible from all directions (open structure)
I have a rough idea of making a ball out of balsa wood triangles and suspending the egg in the center with string and tape. I also thought that by using 3 baggies one inside the other with the egg inside one of them, that it would provide deceleration on impact. (hopefully saving my egg, a broken egg is a failing grade)
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
