My egg drop design was made out of four smoothie straws cut in half, one balloon, and a lot of duct tape. I folded the straws in half to make a more stable and structurally sound landing device. Some of the straws cracked slightly at the tips during landing. The balloon was so that I did not have to add so much extra debris to the device, so it would be smaller, and I could tape directly to the balloon. I chose this design because it was small and strong. Even though I tried many others, I found this one to be the best.
