How do you build an egg protector with limited supplies?

Home More advice Education & School

For my Tech Ed class we have to make a egg protector that will protect an egg from a 16 ft. drop using limited supplies. The supplies are: a plastic bag, half a piece of newspaper, 1/2 a filing folder,24 inces of strin, 8 inches of tape,a cupcake liner,12 inches of 1/8X18 balsa wood(sqaure dowel) 2 paper clips,1 peice of copy paper. So, how would I make a egg protector with those materials? We can only use 7 out of the 9 materials. Our drop zone will be off of the second story staircase at our school. I would totally be able to make this on my own but we do not get a box for the egg, I repeat we do not get a box for our egg protector. We have to make our own. Thanks for your help.
