School Experiment: Surface Tension

Their Thursday school Experiment activity was about Surface Tension.

They had a shallow dish of water with a light coating of black pepper, teacher told the kids to pretend that the pepper is the virus.

Then with a small drop of dish soap on their finger, they would touch the surface of the pepper water and the pepper would move away from their finger.

Then teacher tried to explain surface tension but at the same time, she had to remind the kids not to eat the pepper or drink the water because it would be spicy.

I had to rinse out the water and pepper multiple times so that Lucas could try it over and over again.

I think he likes experiments
