Physics Design Challenge: Light Bulb Drop!

CHALLENGE: Remembering all that you have learned about impulses and changes in momentum, you are invited to participate in the annual NCS Physics Light Bulb Drop Challenge. Your mission is to design a package for a standard size, non-heavy duty incandescent light bulb that will protect it from a fall from the balcony. Please note that the “fall” may include an upward toss and/or flip. After the bulb is dropped, it will be tested (plugged into a lamp) to see if it still works.
