Sci Fri: Egg-speriments


Last year our 3 for 1 Egg-speriments had a more hands (and feet!!)-on approach http://mamadrool.blogspot.ca/2015/04/3-for-3-egg-speriments.html
This year we took a page from Playdough to Plato for our 3 in 1 seasonal egg-speriments.

Just as interesting, but involving more observation.

Naked Egg

The Naked Egg involves submersing a raw egg in each a mug of H20 and vinegar.
After about three days, the vinegar soaked egg has shed it's shell, increased in size and become a bouncy ball!
Something Baby C was quick to discover!
 
Homemade Bouncy Ball
 

The second and third experiments involved submersing the Naked Egg in corn syrup, which shrinks your bouncy ball and adding food colour and water, which makes your bouncy egg expand again.
