Description:

This is a quick activity (located on page 2 of the PDF) about surface tension. Learners will predict how many pennies can be placed in a full glass of water before it overflows. Water has a surprising amount of surface tension and can even support the weight of paper clips and coins as shown in the related, linked video, DragonflyTV Nano: Nasturtium Leaves.
