We’re sure you have heard of a ship in a bottle, but we always want to put a special Science Sunday twist on these activities. So, today we are making an egg in a bottle, with the help of science. All you are going to need for this experiment is a glass bottle, a hard boiled egg and some matches. (Kids will need parental supervision for this experiment since it does involve the use of matches). At first, you will notice that the egg doesn’t quit fit into the bottle, but follow along with us below and you will see something amazing happen right before your eyes.
The Connecticut Science Center is now open Tuesday-Sunday 10AM-5PM. Timed tickets must be reserved online in advance of your visit. Reserve your tickets by visiting CTScienceCenter.org.
