I think that when the diver sank thewater weighed less.

I noticed that the water inside is parted if you squeeze down where it is. The diver went under 'cause of the force in your hands.The water shoots upward going over the diver and when the water set back down, the diver came out of the water because the water dropped.

Bailey, MI | (none)
it gets heaver because the air is trapped inside.

Hi my name is Eli. We did two rounds of the diver do it. in the first round it just did not work but in the second round one floated then sunk but didn't come back up I wonder why?

My results were the when I squeezed the bottle, the diver sank all the way to the bottom. But when I didn't squeeze the bottle, it would float!It was AWESOME!

When I squeezed the bottle, the straw floated up. When I squeezed it again, it came down.
