Egg White Experiment

Today we did some experiments to see what happened if we heated egg whites. We broke an egg white on an oven tray and predicted what would happen when we put it in the oven. We thought it might bubble, set, turn white, crystalise, pop, explode or flame up. Thankfully the last two didn't happen or else we might have burned the school down, but we did observe that it looked like cheese, turned from see through to white, went solid, milky and hardened up.
We also predicted what would happen if we beat the egg whites (and added sugar) and then heated them. We are excited to go back to school tomorrow to see what they are like and maybe eat them!

  1. I've head all about this and how yummy they were. I've never realised how much expression can go into the word meringue until today! Great mahi team!
