EGG-citing EGG-speriments!

Crack open a carton of eggs and start experimenting:

1. Make the shell disappear. Submerge an egg in white vinegar overnight or longer. Keep checking until only the membrane is left. Feel how rubbery it is. Will it bounce? (Be careful!)

2. Follow the same instructions as #1 but this time use a hard-boiled egg. Now try bouncing it!
