Surface Tension Experiments For Kids

What is surface tension of water?

Surface tension exists on the surface of water because water molecules like to stick to each other.

Scientist, Agnes Pockels discovered the science of surface tension of fluids simply doing the dishes in her own kitchen. Pockels designed an apparatus known as the Pockels trough, a key instrument in the new discipline of surface science.

Here are some fun ways to demonstrate the surface tension of water:
