Today is the first day of June, meaning summer (and outdoor summer fun) is right around the corner. In the heat of summer, what is one way you can cool yourself off? You got it- with water! Whether it’s running through a sprinkler or jumping in a pool, we all love some fun with water. How much do you know about water, and more specifically water pressure? Today, we are going to show you some simple activities you can try at home to explore water pressure.
When you’re all done, we would love to see your results! Share your pictures and videos with us using #ScienceAtPlay.
