Preschool Experiment ~ "The Naked Egg"

This is what we need to make the Naked Egg (a fully intact egg with no hard shell): a bowl with a lid, 1-2 eggs and enough white vinegar to cover the eggs twice.

This is Day 1, the eggs are covered with vinegar and you can immediately see bubbles

Day 2, more bubbles and white substance floating around. I gently lifted the egg out with a large spoon, rinsed the bowl, poured in new vinegar and returned the eggs.

Day 3, There is no shell left on the egg. It feels rubbery, like a water balloon

I can't see the yolk as well as I would have liked, but there is a shadow and some floating white material (albumen)

Here is our "Naked Egg"
