You need to create something that can absorb the energy the egg gathers as it accelerates towards the ground. Think carefully about how you can protect the egg. A cushion, a way to decelerate speed, a buffer.
On Friday, January 6, we will drop each creation from the roof of Learning House. The winner(s) will receive a prize.
