Turning a raw egg into a bouncing ball is a fun (and sometimes) messy experiment to try at home! With just two ingredients, a jar, and some patience, your family can explore what happens to make an egg bounce.
What happens to make the egg turn into a rubber bounce ball? The chemical that makes up the eggshell (calcium carbonate) reacts with the acid in the vinegar. That reaction of an acid and a base creates carbon dioxide (a gas) that causes the eggshell to disappear (look for the bubbles!).
