Using a microwave you can both cook and extract the meat from a lobster leg in 30 seconds. Some people also call this popcorn lobster.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Materials
All you will need is the following:
- Raw lobster legs
- A Tupperware container or something similar that will fit a lobster leg
This works best with a good sized lobster, as there is not much meat in the little guys. Aquire lobsters by whatever means is convenient and pull off the legs. I usually toss them all in a ziplock bag and stick them in the fridge.
Step 2: Cook and Enjoy
Place 1 leg in the tupperware and fasten the lid.
Note: If you don't use a container, you will have a lobster explosion all over your microwave(trust me)
Set the microwave for 30 seconds. At some point you will hear a pop and you can stop the microwave. The pop is the cooked leg meat shooting out of the shell from the built up pressure.
Consume the delicious snack and repeat as needed.
Note: do not be greedy and try and do more than one at once.
