Egg Stand Challenge

Hi scientists, Happy Spring! We would like to challenge those of you that have been successful in getting an egg to stand up to keep trying daily (preferably with the same egg) to see a trend over time. There has been significant research saying that it is more the shape of the egg and patience of the person that creates the ability to stand an egg up. Lets do some science to determine if eggs standing only on the vernal equinox (1st day of spring) is just a myth.

Materials

1 Egg

Investigation

**Raw eggs can carry many diseases, please wash your hands and the surface used after completing this Challenge.**

Get an egg to stand up on your counter or another flat surface, it takes a lot of patience, a little luck, and a good egg. Save your egg and keep trying daily to see if it is possible to keep standing your egg over time.

 

 

 

Talking Points

You can only get an egg to stand on the Vernal Equinox (First Day of Spring) has been a long going science myth. In our investigation we have set out to prove that the shape of the egg and patience of the person that is balancing is really the secret to getting an egg to stand. Stay tuned for our ongoing results in the #EggStandChallenge
