Shrinking eggs – make an egg shrink and then expand, but first you’ll have to remove the shell to expose the delicate membrane.



How Strong is an egg shell? Can you balance books on a egg shell? and how many? What else could you balance on top of the eggs?


Books on top of egg shells.


Air Pressure – find out how to get an egg through a small jar. Watch as the egg drops into the jar like magic.



Transforming egg white – find out what happens when you whisk egg white and why. This one is a bit messy, but lots of fun and very yummy!
