Cow Eye Demonstration


Publication 13188

Price: FREE

What is the definition of corrosive? This unforgettable demonstration will imprint forever the definition of corrosive in the students’ minds. Adding acid to a cow eye and then quickly rinsing it off shows students the immediate and irreversible damage that occurs to eye tissue when a strong acid is splashed in the eyes. Students will observe the deterioration of the eye tissue after just a few seconds of exposure to the acid. Teachers often have a difficult time getting students to wear their goggles—this demonstration is an effective way of solving this problem!
