How do you make the Best Quality Hard-Boiled Eggs?
Almost everyone has one. We did, too.
Our Friday group wanted to examine science and food. So, what better way to engage everyone in the scientific method? We started with something we all knew - boiling water and eggs. And, we all had something to say - either from personal experience or observation.
Here's the Scientific Method that we followed:
1. Observe. Ask questions.
2. Do background research.
3. Construct hypothesis. (What do we think will happen?)
4. Test hypothesis. (Do the experiment. Collect and organize data.)
5. Analyze data. Draw conclusions.
6. Share results.
Our experiments were three hard-boiled egg recipes: two from learners and one from incredibleegg.org.
Like all good experiments, we made a hypothesis. We hypothesized which of the three recipes would produce the best quality hard-boiled egg.
See the photos resulting from our experiment. Which recipe do you think we picked before we conducted the experiment? Which recipe do you think was the winner?

How did our recipes stack up to your best boiled-egg recipe?
Do you agree with our interpretations and conclusions?
