Break the Tension: A Water Experiment
Surface tension is one of water's most important properties. It's the reason that water collects in drops. It's also why water can travel up a plant stem, or get to your cells through the smallest blood vessels. Help your child understand surface tension by showing her how she can create a "skin" on the surface of water with this interesting surface tension experiment.
