The highest we drop our egg from was from the roof of the school. The first drop: Time: 3.64 Distance: 125mm. Our design was effective our design protected the egg from the highest drop. The wind lifted the parachute and that caused the parachute to fly up but the weight of the tissue box dragged it down. Our hypotheses was accepted. We could have put a lid over the tissue box to protect the egg more.
