How To: Turn a Shelled Egg into a Bouncing Translucent Ball

Turn a Shelled Egg into a Bouncing Translucent Ball

Turn your kitchen into a science lab with this egg-tastic science experiment, which turns a shelled raw egg into a bouncing translucent ball. It's one of the simplest tricks of all time, and all you need is a raw shelled egg and some vinegar.

Let the egg soak in the vinegar for a few days and take it out and clean it off. Now, you have a bouncing egg, just like a bouncy ball. Only this one could still break. Put the egg into a bowl of water now and watch it hydrate itself, sucking up all of the water.
