Science Experiment: Egg in Vinegar

image
Cover the egg in vinegar.
image
Cover and leave in the fridge for one week (change vinegar after the first 24 hours)
image
Carefully remove the egg from the vinegar.
image
Gently wipe off the shell with a tissue.
image
I am not entirely sure if this is supposed to happen, especially since it then dripped slightly from this bit. Perhaps we weren’t careful enough. Squiggle said the shell looked and felt like sand as it rubbed off.
image
The egg is now quite squishy and rubbery!
image
Squiggle enjoyed bouncing it around the table.
image
Of course it is still an egg so therefore not entirely indestructible! When it finally broke from all the (over-enthusiastic) bouncing, the shell felt like latex but gritty and was almost whole. Squiggle found this very interesting.
