Did you know that liquids can act like a magnifying glass?
Stuff You'll Need
paper with writing on it
medicine dropper or straw
How to do it
Put plastic wrap on top of a piece of paper that has writing on it.
Next, put a washer down over a word and use a medicine dropper or straw to put a couple drops of water in the center of the washer.
Look at the letters through the water.
See how they look bigger?
The water magnifies because as light goes through the water drop, the water bends the light and makes the letters look wider. It works differently with different liquids because they all bend light different amounts.
