Measuring Egg Accuracy

Measuring Egg Accuracy | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Are egg producers measuring their eggs accurately? Let's find out! We'll compare the mass and circumference of brown and white eggs to see if there's a difference.


The hypothesis is that the brown colored eggs will be more accurately measured than the white eggs.

Method & Materials

You will need to gather materials, buy eggs, set up a triple beam balance, measure the circumference of the eggs, weigh the eggs, and record the data.
You will need a triple beam balance, 12 brown eggs, 12 white eggs, a newspaper, a refrigerator, a tape measure, and a pencil.


The results of the experiment showed that the brown colored eggs were measured more accurately than the white eggs. This suggests that the mass of eggs is affected by the color of the egg’s shell.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it shows how the color of an egg can affect its mass and circumference.

Also Consider

Variations to consider include using more eggs in each group and adding blue eggs as well.
