Inside Out Egg Experiment is fun for the kids to try around Easter. The egg yolk comes out white, while the egg white comes out yellow!

You need: stockings, scotch tape, twistie ties and an egg.

Wrap the egg is scotch tape. Shine a flashlight at the egg. If you cannot see through it, the amount of tape is perfect. Put the egg inside the stocking and tie the ends of the stocking securely with twistie ties, so that the egg does not move. Twist the egg inside the stocking vigorously. Cook as you would normally cook a hard-boiled egg.

The science behind the egg:

When you spin the egg rapidly, the runny yolk is drawn towards the edge of the egg by the centrifugal force, while the albumen is pushed to the center. If you spin the egg long enough, the yolk and albumen separate, so that when boiled the egg appears inside out. If you don’t spin it for long enough,however,  the two mix so that you get an instant scrambled egg.
