Dental Hygiene

The eggshell science project

05/09/2007

Question:

Please help!! My son has a project due in four days and we are having a hard time. We were going to use the chicken bones but I like the eggshells better. Please I need more information such as why are we comparing eggshells to teeth, what do I write on this experiment, and how do I display it. My first science project Please help soon. Thank you so much

Answer:

Eggshells pick up staining similar to the enamel of teeth.  You didn't exactly say what you are testing so it's difficult to guide you as to how to set this up.
