Life or Something Like It

The Experimental Egg

The Experimental EggThe Experimental Egg

The Experimental Egg.  Peach is taking Biology with a Lab, this semester.  She enjoys experiments, but sadly, they don’t always turn out the way she needs them to.

This experiment, however, exceeded our expectations!  She had placed a raw egg in a glass and cover it with vinegar.  That had to sit, covered, for a few days.  In that time, the outer shell began to flake off.  Once the outer shell was completely gone (the egg is raw, mind you), she had to pour out the vinegar and then cover the egg with syrup.  That had to set covered, for a few days.

Measure that Egg

In the midst of the egg hanging out in either vinegar or syrup, she had to measure the egg each time.  Once the process was complete, the egg had shrunk considerably.  When she pulled it out of the syrup, this is what she found.  A gelatinous egg where you could bring the yolk around and you could see the yolk.  It was squishy and awesome!  I’m so proud of her!  We enjoyed The Experimental Egg.

Try It!

Trying new experiments can be super fun.  There is not much that my kids would not enjoy when it comes to creating or exploding things.
