Elijah's Surface Tension Experiment

We gathered a bowl of water and we gently put the small square of mesh on top of the water.

Elijah then VERY gently placed the cork on top of the mesh.

With a dropper he added a drop of liquid detergent to the water near the little "raft" he had created.

Now that is called "breaking the tension"! Yea, yea, yea, we are pretty corny here.
