Science experiments have always proved to be very helpful in making the kids understand the interesting aspects of science. Some of these science experiments may appear as magic to the kids but the proper demonstration of these experiments help them to know about the science involved in them.
While performing these science experiments kids should follow the instructions properly and use proper safety equipments such as safety gloves, goggles, cloak, etc., in order to prevent any sort of injury or accident. Therefore it is always recommended to perform these science experiments under the supervision of an adult only. One of the most popular science experiments is the Water from the Desert science experiment. In this article we will discuss about this science experiment.
How to extract water from a desert :
To perform this Water from the Desert science experiment all you need is a beaker, transparent plastic foil and a small stone. First of all dig a deep hole on sand and put the beaker in the center of this hole. Now take a transparent plastic foil and spread it over the hole and place a small stone in the center of this foil. Make sure that the edges of foil are fixed firmly. Now leave it there and wait till next morning. Next morning you will be amazed to find some water in the beaker. This happens because during the sunshine, little drops of water are formed under the cooler foil due to evaporation of moisture in sand by the heat of sun. These drops then become larger and flow into the beaker that is place below the foil. This method is generally used in desert as one of the survival techniques.
You may have observed that this Water from the Desert science experiment is quite simple to conduct and does not require much effort at all. Children can try this Water from the Desert science experiment at their home and show it to their friends or family members.
