Hooked on Science - Turkey Baster Ping Pong Ball Launcher

hooked science 300KENTUCKY (8/9/14) — You might use a turkey baster in the kitchen, but not our “Science Guy” Jason and a kid scientist shows us how to turn a turkey baster into a ping pong ball launcher.

INGREDIENTS

  • Turkey Baster

  • Ping Pong Balls

INSTRUCTIONS

  • STEP 1: Remove the plastic piece of the turkey baster from the rubber piece of the turkey baster.

  • STEP 2: Place a ping pong ball into the open part of the rubber piece of the turkey baster, squeeze and observe.

EXPLANATION

As you squeeze the rubber piece of the turkey baster you create enough force to push the ping pong ball out, causing it to shoot through the air.

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