Nelson's Science Class

In Ms. Nelson's 6th-grade science class, students are engaging in a captivating experiment that embodies the essence of scientific exploration. They are formulating hypotheses and diligently testing their theories to answer a seemingly simple yet intriguing question: How many drops of water can fit on a penny, nickel, and dime? This hands-on activity not only sparks the curiosity of young minds but also introduces them to fundamental scientific principles such as surface tension and the effects of surface area. As students meticulously count the drops on each coin, they are not only acquiring valuable skills in hypothesis development and experimental methodology but are also gaining a deeper appreciation for the wonders of the natural world and the investigative spirit of science.
