The classic physics project involving an egg and a parachute is to have students develop a method to protect an egg that's been dropped, showcasing force, velocity, and energy.

I guess you could try to figure out the maximum speed at which an egg could hit the ground without breaking. You would need parachutes of different sizes and a large number of eggs. To measure the speed, measure the time it takes for the egg to fall 3 feet after you drop it.
