In the Home Activity, "Eggcitement," the picture of the egg is turned 90 degrees fro where you want it to be! When the egg comes out of the chicken, it does so along the major axis of the egg shape. That is where the strength lies...not along the sides as shown in the pictures of the activity. My background as a secondary science teacher, and years of using this same exercise as a challenge that can't be done if the egg is uniformly intact, tell me that your way will guarantee a mess!
Thanks for the note Norman,
You are correct about the egg being stronger in the "long dimension." However, by rotating the egg 90 degrees (as shown in the experiment), you allow more fingers or more surface area to be involved in applying the force. This increase in surface area helps distribute the pressure throughout the egg more efficiently.
We've been doing this activity for years with hundreds of students and have had great success.

I enjoyed visiting this site, but I wanted to comment on one particular restaurant experiment. The Atomizer experiment would be very interesing to most kids, but I cannot understand why this would be an experiment you feel appropriate to try in a RESTAURANT. Not only does it cause a mess and make a disruption, but it does not at all teach children the way to act in a restaurant. Good experiment, bad location. Sure wouldn't want to be sitting next to that table!
Hello Jenny,
We received your email about the atomizer experiment. Thanks for your input.
Most of the experiments we present should first be performed at home or school before venturing out to a restaurant. We do feel there is a need for appropriate behavior in appropriate locations. If a parent and their child conduct an experiment, we feel the adult should be the judge as to this appropriateness. We would never encourage some one to do the atomizer experiment in a fancy reserved culinary setting, but we've conducted this activity hundreds of times in restaurants with outdoor seating, at picnics and at eateries with boisterous/ fun atmospheres.

There are many lessons in life a child needs to learn, and appropriate behavior is one of them. However, we also feel that enjoyment, interest and appreciation of science is also one of these lessons.

Can you explain the reaction that occurs when lifsavers and mentos are placed on a string hanging from the cap into a bottle of soda with the cap tied on tightly? The soda begins to spray from the hole in the lid of the cap that the string is through, but what exactly causes this reaction? I saw this on David Letterman and was xtremely curious. Please get back to me on this occurance. Sincerely, Brooke

Our family has really enjoyed the restaurant activities, although we did them at home on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The straw pump/mister experiment was great. It was very hard to get the straws' angles correct, but once we found the corrrect placement, it was amazing to see how high lift we could get.

I love your site! I am trying to remember an experiment that someone showed me involving a straw and a liquid in a bottle. The dare was that someone with a straw could drink the liquid faster than someone without a straw. I think that the bottom of the straw was cut to flare a bit, and then the top was bent to create a "u". The straw drinker then placed one straight straw and the bent straw into the bottle, flared-side down, and sucked from the straight straw (I think). The liquid filled the "u" or submarine straw, but allowed the drinker to finish the drink in very short time. Have you heard of this, how or why does it work, and am I remembering it correctly? Thanks!

I listen ti your interview last weekend in KCRW and that night I tried the oil, water and salt experiment. It worked great, but man did I get in trouble with the women at the table. As soon as the kids at our table ( there were 3 families with 5 kids), they got into the act, except they made a mess. There were some ticked off Mothers, but the Fathers got a real kick out of it. All for the cause of science.

This web-site is the coolest! Now I don't have to feel so intimated by science! You're a genius! I think I'll visit this site often.

Hey Hal, Try it! It works. You might have to try a couple of different types of plastic straws, but it'll pop (I don't think paper straws will work). I made a short (704k) .avi movie that shows how to twist and pop a straw. I didn't include it with the original activity because it requires Netscape 4 and may take a few minutes to download (depending on your connection). Once it downloads, turn up the sound on your computer and click on the movie. Click here to see it. -Eric

The "popping straw" trick sounds interesting. However, I find it difficult to believe that tough plastic straws, like most fast food restaurants have, can be twisted like that. And I don't know where I'd have to go to find a paper straw anymore.

I enjoy this site! I printout & pass on the ideas to some of my non-WWW friends. We laughed, wondering what our food servers would think of us dumping salad oil in our water glasses...! Anyway, I love science - always have. Now I'm a clinical scientist. Not to mention a pyrotechnician. Let me tell you, the science behind fireworks is REALLY interesting! But not the sort of thing you can do at the dinner table.

What great ideas! Not only are they very amusing, but so educational, too. I'll be able to entertain my friends, and be thrown out of new restaurants, as well. Good luck!
