Here’s a classic science experiment that is more than a hundred years old and is guaranteed to amaze your friends.
The original demonstration used a hard-boiled egg and a glass milk bottle. Since old milk bottles are hard to come by, here’s a modern-day version of the same experiment using a juice bottle and a water balloon. You’ll also get a chance to try your hand at getting a real egg into a juice bottle using a cool, upside down twist.
With just a few household items, we can show you how a hard-boiled egg can squeeze right through the mouth of a bottle. The Egg in a Bottle Trick is a science classic, dating back at least a hundred years. It’s a brilliant method of teaching just how powerful air pressure can be and the trick is also a great way of messing with your friends. We won’t stop there, we’ll also show you how to perform a gravity defying version of the trick… it’s an “eggsclusive” upside-down twist!
