Fondren Middle School “Egg Baby” Experiment: some neglected, but all survive
During February 2014 – As part of their Bee Busy STRAPP program, students are making egg babies to gain insight into what it is like to care for something fragile other than themselves. Students must keep the egg baby with them at all times and take care of the egg for a while and treat it like a child. During this time students will study the reproductive systems and human development.
As Easter approached, we decided to take a cue from the classic high-school project, the one designed to teach randy teens about the responsibilities of real parenthood. We hollowed out the eggs, "dressed" them, gave them names, put them in aerated containers. And attempted to carry them wherever we went.
Surprisingly, all eggs survived intact. But hijinks — and embarrassing moments of neglect — ensued. And those dingos? They came out of nowhere.
