Drops on a Penny with Mrs. Leonard

On Thursday, we finished our first rotation of Science Magic when we traveled to Mrs. Leonard's room and experimented with dropping water on pennies. We had no idea how much water the surface of the penny could hold!

Many of us got over 40 drops to fit on our penny before it finally spilled over. This site has ideas for how to extend the experiment at home: Steve Spangler Science. They suggest testing using other liquids or even other pennies to see if the results are different!

We are going to begin a second rotation of Science Magic in a few weeks, and this time our experiments will center around earth science! We can't wait :)
