Villyer , Oct 11, , 2 replies, in forum: Cotton balls can also be used to absorb energy, if you can buy enough of them to stuff between the rolled up paper frame. Neither the tissue paper nor the paper frame will weigh very much, so it will not pick up much energy in a big fall, or drop. Most of the energy will be in the egg. When this contraption hits the ground, the energy in the egg will hit soft tissue paper, and the round paper straws.

The air inside the paper frame-straws will help cushion the egg, and absorb energy. The egg will not break or crack. Physics Egg Drop Project. I would use plastic straws and duct tape. You make a cage out of the straws, stick the egg in the middle, and duct tape it in place. Then, do the same thing three more times. Next, connect one side from each hexagon to each other hexagon at right angles and make a big X. Finally, take two more straws and connect them from your middle to the outside with tape.

Take more duct tape, make a few double-sided loops, and put them on these two struts and the middle. Stick the egg onto this tape. It should connect with all three parts - the middle and the two struts. When it gets dropped, the plastic straws will bend with the impact, absorbing the shock.
