Purpose
Is an egg similar to a human cell?

Hypothesis
If the egg is put in milk, then the shell will grow back. According to Mama Natural, “High-quality eggshells contain 27 essential microelements but they’re mostly composed of calcium carbonate, a form and structure that’s very similar to our bones and teeth.” Also, according to My Plastic Free Life, “eggshell powder contains roughly 400 milligrams of calcium per gram.” Since the milk I use, 2% Fat, has 295 milligrams in one cup, it may start a growth of a new egg shell over 24 hours.

Wait 24 more hours and then take the eggs out of their mugs. Take notes on the eggs and then do the same thing you did the last day.

Let the eggs sit for 24 hours. Then, take the eggs out and record any notes about the eggs.
