I believe that in the possible events list for next year, it said that Egg Drop would possibly be an event next year, not Naked Egg Drop. I'm pretty sure that Naked Egg Drop involves making a device to catch the egg in without it breaking, while Egg Drop involves something around the egg that prevents the egg from breaking.

i would try rice with a layer on fiberfill on top its soft but to to soft
wouldn't it potentially bounce? Jello is very bouncy
I guess if it was in cubes it might not
but yeah it would have to be kept very cold

you would need a backing but it wouldn't bounce nearly as muich cause memory foam is made t sink in with wieght its a good idea
