23 October | Science demo

Students learned how to use a partial vacuum to suck a hard-boiled egg through an opening a bit narrower than its diameter.  We put a bit of water into a vase, heated the vase + water in a microwave oven, and put the egg on top of the vase opening.  The vapor cooled and condensed, leaving low pressure in the vase, so that higher air pressure outside pushed the egg in.
