It’s time for another edition of Quick Science! Justin and Kaden love it when I surprise them with some fun quick science.
Today we are sharing how to remove a paper clip from a cup of water! Sounds simple right?
I gave each of them a cup of water with a paper clip in the bottom. Their job was to remove it. In order to remove the paper clip there were a few rules. They had to remove it without putting anything into the water, spilling any water or getting their hands wet.
They both thought about this for a while. They came up with several solutions they thought would work. A fork, a stick, dumping the water. Of course all of these solutions involved either touching the water in some way or removing the water.
Finally Kaden came up with a magnet.
He was right! By using a magnet they could easily slide the paper clip up the side of the cup and onto the magnet without ever touching the water or having the item touch the water.
