Science Freaks: Make and Egg Shell Disappear

Have you ever wondered what an egg looks like on the inside? Eggs are such a unique and special part of life. But when you crack them open they are different than they looked before. It is nearly impossible to see what they look like, untouched inside the shell. Or is it?

This fun experiment from Go Science Girls will help you to finally see inside of an egg. This is so different than a hard boiled egg which only lets you see the firm outer egg white layer. This experiment will help you to remove the outer shell while keeping the white membrane and yellow yolk fully intact.

This experiment can pose a few questions. Is the egg white an important part of the egg? What protects the eggs, the shell, or the egg white? What will happen if the egg shell is removed? what will happen if there is no egg white?

Discuss with your kids why both the egg shell and the white membrane are important. Check out this article about the anatomy of an egg and why each part is important.

Head on over to Go Science Girls for a full tutorial on how to achieve this incredible science experiment. Be sure to check out some other cool experiments while you are there. They do not disappoint!
