Egg drop project
 
Any ideas on how to save an egg from a drop of 2 meters using only 3 sheets of paper? Nothing but the paper. Thanks!

My daughter had to do this project for physics. I definitely suggest googling for info. I recall that my daughters group used part of one sheet to make a cone and the egg was in that. They also shredded some paper to help cushion. They received bonus points if they used less than 3 sheets. It was dropped from the top of the bleachers. Since they have stadium style bleachers (elevated from the ground) it was quite high. I'll ask her for more info.

Isn't the point of the project to come up with your *own* ideas of how to make it work, based on what you have learned in class, instead of just asking a random bunch of people on the web to do your work for you?

:rotfl: I know, I know. I'm a teacher and a mom; I can't help myself, lol. As a school librarian, I teach research skills, and I have my students do all research in class. One reason is that they are forced to do it on their own that way, with my guidance. No Wikipedia (they're in elementary school), no "just Google it," no projects done by mom and dad. Just good, solid research by the students.

I would suggest Google.

CLErunner 01-06-2013 02:48 PM

No tape. I have been trying for a week. I have used google. I am out of ideas.

I suggest researching therefore learning and not simply asking for the answer....

CLErunner 01-06-2013 04:15 PM

Have been. This is my last resort. Thanks for all the help

Just a wild guess. How about make a box like this and the lid for it too. That's 2 pieces of paper.

Then crumple up the remaining paper to cushion the egg in the box.

tweedlemom 01-06-2013 04:47 PM

Can you poke holes on either side of the egg and blow the yolk out or must it remain intact?
