Water has the strongest surface tension of any non-metallic liquid. In this guide we explore just how strong surface tension is--and how it can change--through several hands-on activities.
Come explore cohesion and the basic physics of forces with The Gravity Defying Lid, a Magic Screen, and Hot and Cold Water Cups.
