Surface Tension Science: Build a Raft Powered by Soap #makereducation
Here’s yet another great science project from Scientific American on how to build a raft powered by soap:
Have you ever wondered why a water strider bug can walk on water? Would you believe it is based on the same reasons soap can clean your dishes? In fact, if you look around you carefully, you can find dozens of interesting phenomena that depend on the surface tension of water. In this science activity you will make a little raft that is actually powered by surface tension—and use your vessel to investigate how surface tension works!
