Scale up single canopy penny design for an Egg Drop Lander:

1) Mass an egg and a penny
2) Scale up factorfor single canopy design = ?
(mass of 20 pennies = 1 egg)
(egg mass : penny mass = 20:1)
(egg = 20x more mass than a penny)

DESIGN CONSTRAINTS = 1)plastic garbage bags
2) string
3) masking tape
4) supplied egg as is only
5) pairs only

DESIGN CRITERIA =
1) open canopy drop off peak of gym roof
2) egg survives fall to parking lot surface uninpeeded
3) intact egg displayed to Mr.J.'s satisfaction
4) sumative assessment for meeting constraints - bonus for survival
