Bending a Water Stream

 

Did you know that you can bend a stream of water without even touching it?  Try this out at home, and see if you can impress your friends and family!

First get a regular balloon:

blow it up, tie off the end, and rub the balloon on your hair. When you rub the balloon, you’re creating an electric charge on the surface of the balloon. See if you can make your hair stand up!

Finally, go to the kitchen sink and turn on the tap so that a thin stream of water comes out. Move the balloon close to the stream and you’ll see it move!  Show your friends!
