Eggmosis – Teaching Selectively Permeable Membranes with Eggs. Because of the inner membrane underneath the shell, an egg is a perfect tool when teaching students about selectively permeable membranes. This demonstration takes seconds to set up and can be left out for a few days for students to observe.
This is a class project we did to learn about the plasma membrane and its parts. The phospholipids were made of a balloon, two straws and masking tape to hold the tails onto the balloon. They were tied together on fishing string, glued together with rubber cement, then hung from the ceiling. The other parts were cut from heavy paper.
