hooked science 300KENTUCKY (2/1/14) - Is there a worm in your straw? 

Using a few ingredients from around the house you can turn your straw wrapper into a worm.

INGREDIENTS

  • Straw with Paper Wrapper
  • Water

INSTRUCTION

STEP 1: Using your fingers, completely scrunch the wrapper to the end of the straw.  
STEP 2: Remove the scrunched up wrapper and place it on a flat surface.   
STEP 3:  Using the straw and your finger, slowly add a few drops of water to the scrunched up wrapper and observe.    

EXPLANATION

Each time you added a drop of water, the paper absorbed the water, causing the scrunched up wrapper to look like it was moving on the flat surface.

Go to www.hookedonscience.org  for more experiments that might get you and your family “Hooked on Science.”
