Eggs: bearers of life, source of protein and, chocolate or not, pretty delicious!
This Easter, if you feel like taking a break from stuffing your face full of chocolate (unlikely, we know) check out some other egg-cellent things you can do with eggs and you might just learn some science while you’re at it.
Try making these egg geodes for a fun and colourful science activity to do over the Easter break. These pretty eggs are a model for natural hollows in rocks that contain crystals.
Here are two egg experiments in one! Turn your eggs rubbery by dissolving their shells, and then make one grow and the other shrink with the power of salt water.
If you’re in the mood for an eggy breakfast check out this method of boiling eggs mathematically.
And if you want to get creative but also super precise, here’s a handy way of drawing an egg shape using maths.
These activities are brought to you from our Double Helix magazine – Australia’s best science magazine for kids. For more fun DIY experiments and other fun science stories, subscribe to Double Helix.
