Naked Eggs

Yesterday we started a science experiment that is going to last all week.  Did you know that you can dissolve the shell of an egg and then perform several experiments with the egg that is left?  The first step, of course, is to dissolve the egg shell so that you are left with a naked egg.

We put eggs in several different substances to see which one would dissolve the egg shell the best.

From left to right : Water, Orange Juice, Vinegar, and Coke
What substance do you think will work the best?

Later this afternoon, we will try and bounce the egg with its shell dissolved.  How high will it bounce before it breaks?

And later this week, we'll put a naked egg in corn syrup.  What do you think will happen to the egg then?
