-Bouncy Egg Science Experiments http://coolscienceexperimentshq.com/bouncy-egg/

In this experiment, we are going to turn a regular raw egg into a bouncy egg. The result will be an egg that feels rubbery (like a bouncy ball) and does bounce.  

Just be sure not to jump it too high unless you are ready for a messy result! Watch to the end of the video to see what I mean.
