Make Water Flow Up With Capillary Action
Can water flow up? This simple experiment will teach your child about the different ways liquids can move. Introduce them to the concept of capillarity, a physical process by which a liquid spreads or shrinks when it comes in contact with a particular solid surface. This may seem like complicated science, but it's just a matter of coffee filters and water!
What You Need:
