Students began the Peeing Egg lab during class today. This is the first of three days we will do this lab. We will wait at least 2 days between each part of the lab to ensure as much success as possible. A major part of my lab design is to get students thinking. I also allow the students to determine what solute they want to use for the last part of the experiment. Yes, each group gets two eggs and has a control egg that is soaked in water versus another egg that is soaked in a solution of water and a solute.
You may view an Animoto video
showing the progress of this lab. There is also a video showing one egg "peeing"
at the end of the experiment.
