I have wanted to do this “Rubber Egg” experiment for years! Taking common household items (like eggs and vinegar) and turning them into a completely different thing sounded exciting. It also gave me a chance to be a scientist at home!

I gathered my supplies, did the experiment, and made the following video.  Disclaimer: What you are not going to see are the eggs I broke along the way or the mess I had to clean up, which is typical when doing scienceWhat I hope you do see is how easy, unpredictable and fun science can be!
