Question Egg 'drop' question

Science

If you know how....
dropping an uncooked egg off a 5 foot high ledge and not have the uncooked egg break.
Any idea's how ?

I thought of placing it in a container of water.
Maybe the water would act as an insulator.

Would cooking oil work better ?
Another substance ?

Any other idea's & suggestions ?

Washed my hair and wham, several ideas hit me all at once!

We have done this project for numerous years for 8th grade science.. (our drop was off the roof of the school!)

We built a hammock w/ dowl rods and tore up a swim noodle to cover the rods and then cut a notch out of one section to "cradle" the uncooked egg.
We only had to have a small portion of the egg uncovered to show it had not cracked during each round.

DS15's (now) 2 years ago made it to the finals.. according to the teacher it cracked on the loss drop..however, 4 parents said it did NOT crack and he accepted his teachers decision reluctantly....


Another student took a cone (soccer/football cone) and filled it with some kind of foam stuff to snug the egg and then covered opening of the cone with saran wrap. If the kids remember correctly he ended up winning the egg drop with that contraption. LOL

Good luck!!!

I can post photos of what DS did if you would like a visual.

Sandwich zip top bag with ketchup and honey. Set the bag on the target, drop the egg.

We did this years ago and put the egg in water- I think we used a series of plastic bags filled with water and the final one was a garbage bag with some water- it never broke.
