We tried this experiment in our class as part of our learning re air pressure. We didn't have much luck (unless burning the school carpet is considered success!)
After about 6 attempts we did manage to get half an egg in the bottle.
But the challenge to successfully complete this experiment was taken up by Louie Travers and his mum.
Watch the experiment work below.
It's so awesome to see that school learning is being supported at home.
If anyone else does any cool air experiments I would love to share them on the blog.
