Did you know that cohesive forces in water cause surface tension? But what exactly is it? And do all liquids have surface tension? In this lesson on surface tension for kids we will help you answer all of those questions.
In this lesson we will:
Experiment with the surface tension of water
Observe how soap affects surface tension
Explore other liquid’s surface tension
Use the classic coin surface tension experiment to practice counting, graphing, and developing a hypothesis.
