The incredible edible...erupting egg!

Many of us like eggs and know the different ways to use them in food, and now, we can watch them erupt with science!

What You'll Need:

  1. Water and food coloring if you want the egg to be colored

  2. Shrunken egg (from the shrunken egg experiement, find directions >here<)

  3. Toothpick

What You'll Do:

  1. Take the shrunken egg and place it in water (if you use colored water, you can give it a twist for the end result) Wait for 3 to 5 hours.

  2. Your egg will reabsorb the water and grow again, but will also turn colored if you made the water colored.

  3. Take the egg out of water, poke a hole in the top with a tooth pick, and water will errupt out like a volcano.

Have a great weekend, Mahoning Valley!
