(To the tune of 12 Days of Christmas) On the 2nd Day of Science my child came to me with a cup and a piece of paper...
For today's epidsode of 5 days of Hands on Science, Tiger will demonstrate a simple experiment and explain why it works. Have fun :) If the videos don't show up, check your filter settings because they are being run through YouTube.
If you still can't see what he is doing:
1. Take a glass (clear is better).
2.Fill a sink of water. (make sure that the water level will be close to as deep as the cup is tall)
3.Wad up a piece of paper and shove in the bottom of the glass.
4.Turn the cup over and carefully place the cup into the water. Place it straight down making sure not to tip the glass. The air pressure and water pressure will prevent the paper from getting wet even though the cup is submerged.
5. Remove the cup by picking it straight up. Is the paper wet?
