hooked science 300KENTUCKY (10/29/13) - We typically use the vacuum cleaner hose to help clean the house, but did you know your vacuum cleaner hose and packing peanuts can be used to help teach an important science lesson?
 
INGREDIENTS
• Vacuum Cleaner Hose
• Styrofoam Packing Peanuts

INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1: Place several Styrofoam packing peanuts on a table.
STEP 2: Spin the vacuum cleaner hose above your head while placing the other end of the hose close to the Styrofoam packing peanuts.
 
EXPLANATION
A low pressure forms inside of the vacuum hose as you spin it above your head. The higher pressure outside of the vacuum hose pushes the Styrofoam packing peanuts into the hose and out of the other end. Go to www.hookedonscience.org for more experiments that might get you and your family “Hooked on Science.”
