I loved this experiment.
Son wants to do it again.
We learned about air pressure.
Here we have a test tube mosquito.
We are boiling the water...creating the pressure.
Though it has one wing (a second holder was to be it's second wing) it worked great.
Sucking the "blood" (ours is alien blood...all I had was green).
Can you see the squirt?
Before we heated the water it wouldn't/couldn't suck anything up.
Gotta love science!
