Can You Cook An Egg On The Sidewalk?

We are experiencing a big heat wave this week with temperatures near 100 degrees. In an effort to work in a science project this week I decided we would try to cook an egg on the sidewalk.

Alexis wasn't to keen on the idea and didn't think it was "sciency." She says "Why don't we just cook an egg on the stove?"

Geez...is she missing the point or what? So I say "Because it is 98 degrees and this way we can see if it is hot enough to cook an egg outside!"

This is our egg. We waited about 10 minutes and nothing happened. We even tried directing a beam of sunlight at the egg with a magnifying glass. Nothing happened so we moved the egg to the blacktop.


This is the egg after 10 minutes on the blacktop. Conclusion: It definitely is not hot enough to cook an egg on the sidewalk.

  1. So funny. It was 104 here yesterday, and I was thinking we should leave our cast iron skillet out in the sun to heat up and see if we could cook an egg.
