hey jaszzdancer! i just did the same project. for mine i popped a bag of popcorn.. and just placed my egg in the middle.

-pop a bag of popcorn
-pour out about half..
-then place your egg in the middle
-pour the rest in
-tie the bag with a rubberband

i was soo surprized when i saw opened my bag up and pulled out my raw egg..
no dents. no cracks.. a liitle bit of butter. but thats it =)

Wow that is a great idea, but risky. If you were to drop it and accidently shake it a litle and it got off place because egg is heavy. You could have easily lost the egg! But good ide, smart!:) :mad: :D :( :p :o :confused: ;) :rolleyes: :cool:

well in 6th grade i did that i used cottonballs and it barely cracked but waterballoons work i think and cottonballs work too if you tighten them enough.i used a disposable cube thing and it worked fine
by the time you get this it will probly be too late tho

I think you should use eight feet because it is a very irregular height
