An egg is a very big cell. This website offers a couple of Life Science experiments to help you discover:
- The Biochemistry of the Egg Shell
- Diffusion and Osmosis in Animal Cells
- The Flying Pizza Pan Egg Drop!
You’ll find several fun experiments using eggs here – including ‘Squeeze an Egg Without Breaking It!” When you get to this site, you’ll land on a page that requests you sign up to receive the free newsletter. If you don’t want the newsletter, look for the “X” in the bottom right corner of the page – click on it to close the sign-up page and access the experiments.
Science Frontiers website explains how to make hard boiled eggs act like water sprinklers — has something to do with gravity and centrifugal force.
This eggs-citing experiment uses a little vinegar and a hard-boiled egg to get some amazing results.
A stay-at-home mom offers a Pinterest page of Egg Experiments (linking to a variety of websites) that she and her kids have tried or checked out. Good stuff. :)
