In these fascinating water experiments you will learn how many paperclips you can add to a glass full of water. Water molecules are attracted to each other because they have both a positive and negative charge. The two charges work to keep water together forming a film over the surface of water. You will be using this property when you do this amazing and fun science experiment.

Water molecules have a positive and negative charge like little magnets. the negative part of the water molecule is attracted to another water molecules opposite pole where they stick together.
The attraction of water molecules to other water molecules is called cohesion. The force of the cohesion allows water to form a small dome over the top of a glass as you add the paperclips without overflowing.
