Tiger’s Class have been very scientific over the past week. On Friday 12th January, they set up an experiment to discover the outcome on sugars on tooth enamel. Now, we are not amateur dentists, so we decided to us a similar material to make our conclusions.
We took 7 hard boiled eggs and immersed all but one in various liquids – milk, water, sugar-free squash, normal squash, orange juice and coke. We then left them for an entire week to see what would happen to the shell of the eggs.
What was surprising was that we’d all predicted that the coke would have the biggest effect – in actual fact it just dyed the outside brown, whereas the sugar-free option had the most disturbing change!
