a drink of water would be very different if you where the size of a
doll. Turn on the water in the doll sink. How much water can you get
into the cup? Can you pour the water out? The water in the tiny cup
looks strange because of surface tension. In a big cup we don't notice
surface tension. The behavior of small drops of water is dominated by
surface tension. This exhibit is made up of a miniature sink that drips
tiny drops of water into a cup. The cup is held by a tiny-barbie like
hand which can be manipulated by visitors.
