Thinking & Engaging

Have some science fun with eggs, then maybe eat them after.


  • Eggs and other materials required for each experiment


  • Now it Sinks
  • Find the Fresh Egg
  • Find the Uncooked Egg
  • The Uncrushable Egg Shell
  • Egg and Soda
  • Can You Remove the Shell of an egg Without Cracking it?
  • Can You Make an Egg Bounce?


  1. Divide the participants into a few groups and give each group an Eggsperiment Card.
  2. Distribute the required materials and have each group follow the instructions on their recipe card with little to no guidance (but maximum supervision). Reconvene later to discuss the process.


  • Alternatively, depending on the size of your group, you can do each (or a few) of the recipe cards as one group.


  • For the “The Uncrushable Egg Shell” experiment, be sure that the egg shells are trimmed down and flat.


Some fun egg facts:

  • A hen lays about one egg per day.
  • It takes 4 to 7 days for eggs to get from the farm to your grocery store.
  • Brown and white eggs have the same nutritional value and quality. Brown eggs are generally laid by brown-feathered hens and white eggs are laid by white-feathered hens.
  • Research shows that eating a high protein breakfast that includes eggs can improve performance in school by increasing concentration levels.
  • Eggs are a source of DHA, the Omega-3 fat related to healthy brain development. A child (1 to 8 years old) can get over 80 percent of the recommended daily amount of DHA by eating one Omega-3 egg.
  • Eggs also contain choline which stimulates brain development and improves concentration.
