Check back next week to find out what the science principles that help to make this work.
Learn a fun science trick that you can do with your friends (after some practice). It requires some patience to do, but it is really great fun to do.
What scientific principle is involved here? It has something to do with the properties of water. I will post the reason next week. I want you to think about it...
