Jonathan and 3 classmates had to design and build a structure to keep an egg from breaking from a drop. Assignment was given Monday and due today, Friday. They spent Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from after school to around 8:00 pm planning, failing, and trying again to finally come up with a design that would meet all the qualifications. They decided on plastic hangers, straws and rubber bands all put together with duct tape. The egg will be placed within a box constructed of straws and duct tape. More straws will be added on top, weaving in and out of the sides in all directions. The straw box is suspended by rubber bands to the plastic hanger/duct tape frame.
The teacher dropped it from the top of the football stadium and it PASSED THE DROP TEST!
