While brainstorming different ideas for the egg drop we decided to use a paper cup and some rubber bands as a support beam. We thought we could use the rubber bands like a trampoline like figure so it could support when the egg drops it won't compress and hit the ground as hard so it won't crack or break. We used a small cup size so it won't hit the sides as much because we thought the smaller the size the better it will work.
