i made by far the best egg drop container ever:

First build a structure out of straws that resembles a decahedron or similar structure (the best possible structure should be made out of traingles). Then make a small box for the egg lined w/ tissue or something soft (the bos should be rather snug to the egg once filled w/ soft stuff). Then attatch rubberbands to the corners of the outer structure and fasten them to the egg container. The rubber bands should be fairly tight, but loose enough to give some when droped.

the one i built could survive quite a drop.

This one is a winner. Make sure you use thick rubber bands.

I've seen this done at science competitions. The box should hold small particles, like cat litter. The idea is that, when the egg hits it, the energy of the dropping egg is distributed across the surface of the egg that is in contact with the cat litter. Because the cat litter is somewhat light and small, high energy particles get shot out from the sides (think impact craters) taking some of the egg's energy with it.

You can try different materials (particle insulation?). I do know sand will not work. Good luck working on this

Thanks for the replies, guys. I think were going to use a combo of Choven and Owned's ideas. Thanks again.
