Your mission—if you choose to accept it—is to construct a parachute that will deliver an egg safely to the ground when dropped. No fancy materials allowed! You can only use familiar household items like plastic bags and string. Do you think you have what it takes to construct this gravity-defying wonder? Be careful: a sloppy parachute will result in a yolky mess!
Can a parachute made out of plastic bags and string save an egg from a two-story fall?
