Bouncing egg experiment

Do you think an egg can bounce?  Your library staff investigated a book called How To Make a Bouncing Egg by Jennifer L. Marks.  It says that if you leave an egg in vinegar for three days, the shell will dissolve but the membrane will thicken enough that the egg will bounce if dropped from an inch or two high.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, the shell does dissolve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And by day three and four, the egg does become rubbery.

For the video with results, you will have to check out our Facebook page.

Susan, Penny, Darlene, Marguerite and Ali

We  recently said goodbye to Alli Nickel, who has been our shelver for the last year.  We will miss her quiet charm and great work ethic.  She is off to Hamline University, so we expect great things.  Good luck, Alli!

We welcome Ali Geist as our next shelver.  You may know her already from her volunteer work running craft sessions for the summer reading program.  Welcome, Ali!

Marguerite is off on a two-month adventure abroad, so our own Susan Watts will be in charge through the end of October.  Good luck, Susan!

Finally, we welcome Penny Matchinski, who will be filling in as a temporary library technician for September and October.  As a library power-user, we’re sure she’ll hit the ground running.  Welcome, Penny!

P.S.: Darlene Smisek will continue to be the one and only Darlene Smisek.  Way to go, Darlene!
