The Naked Egg: Make an ordinary egg wobbly, bouncy, and squishy using the Scientific Method!

Picture of The Naked Egg: Make an ordinary egg wobbly, bouncy, and squishy using the Scientific Method!
In this Instructable, I'll show you how to make an egg squishy and bouncy using household items, but will also teach you how to use the scientific method. When using the scientific method, remember this acronym:

P: Problem
H: Hypothesis
E: Experiment
O: Observations
C: Conclusion

To make a problem, ask a question. For example: What will happen when you soak an egg in vinegar? Now that we have a question, let's get started!

Step 1: Hypothesis

Picture of Hypothesis
Now it's time to predict what will happen in the experiment. Make sure not to use "I think" in your hypothesis. An example hypothesis is: When an egg is soaked in vinegar, the shell will be eaten away.
 

Control?Variable?

If you put the egg in the vinegar long enough do you think it will almost solidify

I'm not sure, but that would be a cool thing to test out. If you do it, tell me what happens!

Will this work with any egg?

Yes.

This is cool! I am really tempted to do some kind of prank with this...can you still eat the egg afterwards?

I'm not sure. There aren't any toxic ingredients being used, so you should be fine.

Is it still basically a raw egg inside?

Yup
