We love experiencing the magical scientific power of static electricity. In the past, we made a pencil spin without touching it. This is one of the reasons we think static electricity is so amazing. Today we are doing a simple science activity for kids where we bend water using a balloon.
Any type of experiment using a balloon, my son wants to try. In the past we have made a Balloon Rocket, used a balloon to power a boat, and inflated one with vinegar and baking soda. We encourage you to try these activities out for yourself! You will have a blast!
Like most of our science experiments, you probably have all the materials for this project in your home. You will need the following…
How can a balloon bend water?
You are probably wondering how you can bend water using a balloon.
We will give you a hint.
We gave the balloon a negative charge. Afterwards, we held the balloon near the water, which is positively charged. The opposite charges were attracted to each other and the water bends towards the balloon.
Are you still confused?
Watch the video below and see how we did this simply science activity for kids.
