Where can I find age appropiate research on the effects of sand, pennies, and paperclips on water.
Question Date: 2008-11-13
Answer 1:

Answer 2:

I saw a science project about floating paper clips on water that amazed me. I didn't know it could be done.

What effects do you expect to see, of sand, paper clips, or pennies on water? Do you expect that any research has been done on this? What do you mean by: age appropriate? I am happy to try to answer, if I understand better what you are looking for.

Best wishes,
