Supplies: 2 Empty Soda Cans
What happens: Place the two soda cans next to each other sideways on a table. Set the
cans about an inch apart and blow straight down between them. You'd expect the cans to
moving apart when you blow, instead the cans move closer together.

Explanation: Bernoulli's Principle states that moving air exerts less pressure than still air.
You create lower air pressure between the cans when you blow, causing the higher
pressure on the sides to push the cans in.
