Spooky Science #4 - Bend Water

What do you need:

*plastic spoon

*water faucet

*sweater made of wool or fleece

What to do:

Charge the spoon by rubbing it on the sweater. Turn on the faucet with a gentle thin stream of water. Hold the spoon to the stream of water and watch it bend!

How does it work:

The electric charge attracts the uncharged water particles. Water Conducts electricity and draws the charge from the spoon. Tiny water particles in the air also take up electricity.

NOTE: I had to dry the sweater in the dryer for a few minutes to properly charge it before hand. Enjoy!
