Default mail an egg

Hi! this assignment is similar to the egg drop assignment, but with some other problems. We've been asked to mail an egg in the smallest package possible. It must arrive intact in order to get a passing grade. So we need to protect the egg from shock or whiplash and from being crushed while it's being thrown around in the post.

I'd like to take some inspiration from the structure of the egg itself but I'm having trouble coming up with materials that are thin but strong, can absorb or deflect shock, and protect the egg.

thanks!
