I am currently in grade 12 physics and I have been stumped on this egg drop project I have. Basically, we are trying to prevent an egg from cracking after dropping it from different heights except we have a budget and can only use specific materials.

My goals are to drop it from m and be very cost efficient but my friend and I cannot figure out a way to do so. We have tried covering it in straws to help absorb the impact when it hits the ground but it sadly cracked on our second attempt at 2m.

We also tried a square based pyramid and it was hard to get the egg in the middle of the square based pyramid to be stuck in place, so that cracked as well.

Any input would be a lot of help and I thank you all very much for helping! Granted, 20cm isn't a lot, but it's cheap, so you can probably get cm of tape and still be under the other groups budgets. You basically take that 20cm of tape and make a wad of tape, like this.

I was at this summer program way back in high school and saw a group basically put as many of those wads of tape as they could around the egg. They were able to throw the egg up 20 feet in the air and let it hit asphalt without breaking. No one else who tried to be "innovative" with their materials even came close to getting that height. My friend and I were actually thinking of doing this but ended up not doing it because we thought the tape would be too flat on the egg.

After looking at that picture I understand exactly what you mean and I think it could work very well. Thank you very very much! I did a similar experiment in elementary school and this 1 group came up with an idea that was quite brilliant. They made a tetrahedron out of straws and put the egg in the center of it. Since it's a tetrahedron, no matter on which side it lands on, there will be a flat surface holding the contraption up. The egg, being in the middle, shouldn't be able to be touched.

Unfortunately, the group overestimated the strength of the straws and they got bent on impact, so the egg touched the ground got smashed I don't think their egg was fastened tightly enough either so it might have gotten smashed that way too.

Conceptually, though, I still think it was a great idea. To help visualize it, it was something like this: Yea, that was the problem we were having with our square based pyramid, the egg wasn't secured in the middle very well.

I think I can get it to work though if I try it enough so thank you very much for you help! I'll get back to you later and let you know if it worked!

Sorry, I've been working on my other courses homework so that is why I havent updated you yet. So I'll probably get on to it in a couple of hours! This might give ideas https: Sadly, majority of those materials we cannot use but this helped me think about how to create my structure.
