The thing is with this project, is to protect the egg however possible with straws, glue, and toothpicks.

Use your imagination to put these supplies together to make a contraption around or attached to the egg to keep it from bursting open on initial contact with the ground.

Good luck with the project!

*EDIT* Also, look at other posts about the Egg Drop Project you see on this site.

Try wrapping as many straws around the egg as possible..... Try to make it so the egg CANNOT MOVE OR JIGGLE or else it will crack. . wrap it around TIGHTLY.

Default egg drop

OK so you take a straw or two and wrap it around the sides because if you hold and egg in your hands with the point facing your fingers (which are wrapped around the egg) and squezze it it wont break so wrap every strawbut one around the side of the egg and save one for the tip and bottom of the egg
