The Experimental Egg
Peach is taking Biology with a Lab, this semester. She enjoys experiments, but sadly, they don’t always turn out the way she needs them too.
This experiment, however, exceeded our expectations! She had place a raw egg in a glass and cover it with vinegar. That had to sit, covered, for a few days. In that time, the outer shell began to flake off. Once the outer shell was completely gone (the egg is raw, mind you), she had to pour out the vinegar and then cover the egg with syrup. That had to set covered, for a few days.
In the midst of the egg hanging out in either vinegar or syrup, she had to measure the egg each time. Once the process was complete, the egg had shrunk considerably. When she pulled it out of the syrup, this is what she found…a gelatinous egg where you could bing the yolk around and you could see the yolk. It was squishy and awesome! I’m so proud of her!
