Imploding Pop Can
In this dramatic activity/demonstration about phase change and condensation, learners place an aluminum can filled with about two tablespoons of water on a stove burner. When steam begins to exit the opening of the can, learners will turn off the stove, pick up the can with an oven mitt and immediately place the can in a bowl of cold water. To everyone's surprise, the can will implode! Note: this activity requires adult supervision.
