Science Club – Week 2

This week we started by trying to make Rice Krispies jump onto our spoon.  We rubbed our spoons hard to make them electro-statically charged and then held them over a bowl of Rice Krispies and watched them jump onto our spoons!

After this we did a magic matchstick experiment.  We floated matchsticks on the surface of a bowl of water and then watched what happened when we dipped a piece of soap in the middle after which we watched what happened when we dipped a sugar lump in the middle.  It was very exciting as the matches moved out (with the soap) and in (with the sugar) without us even touching them!
