Hands-On Wednesday

Growing and Shrinking Egg

Have you ever seen a shell-less egg? Let's take it a step further by growing and shrinking them! Soak two eggs in two glasses of vinegar for 24 hours.  

Once they are shell-less place one egg in a cup of Karo corn syrup and another in a glass of water. Which one shrunk and which one grew? Was it because of permeable membranes?

Meet a STEM Crew Counselor

Welcome to the Summer Team, Macie!

Major: Interdisciplinary Studies (Math/Science) 

College: Texas A&M University (WHOOP!)

When did you graduate/or expect to graduate? May 2015

What do you want to do when you graduate? I want to be the super fun science teacher! 

What are you excited about for this summer? I am so excited to spend the summer with some awesome campers exploring different aspects of STEM! 

What is one of your favorite summer memories from when you were a kid? My favorite summer memories involve my family. Each summer we would go spend a few weeks at a family lake house in Canyon Lake. The lake house itself was super small so we would drag mattress outside to the backyard and sleep under the stars.
