Description:

Learners initially test to see how many drops of liquid (water, rubbing alcohol, and vegetable oil) can fit on a penny. They then generate their own hypotheses to explain the results and design experiments to test these hypotheses. Learners can actually conduct their experiments as time allows. This activity is a good opportunity to discuss details of experimental design and controlling variables.
