Easter may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t tackle this super simple egg experiment. Ever tried to make a raw egg bounce? It may seem impossible, but this science activity will prove otherwise. Here’s how it works:
What you need:
- An egg (or multiple if you want to repeat the experiment)
What to do:
- Soak your egg in vinegar for two to three days.
- Carefully remove the shell of the egg. You may need to gently wash it off, but make sure the egg itself doesn’t break.
- You’re ready to start the bouncing. At one point it breaks, so keep that in mind when choosing what surfaces to bounce on. Try bouncing the egg from different heights and on different surfaces to test how the egg bounces and at what point it breaks.
- You can have your kids write down the results of each test and go over their observations afterwards.
