Experiment: Passing a skewer through an inflated balloon

Erin S. and Sarah K. LOVE our new book, Super Science Lab from DK Publishing ($8.99 at Pufferbellies). They’ve been trying out lots of experiments from the book, including making ice cream in a bag (video to come) and passing a skewer through an inflated balloon without popping the balloon. What’s that you say? Impossible? NO! Evidence here:

Super Science Lab is chock-full of fun, interesting experiments that you can do with objects found around your house (or purchased very inexpensively). We highly recommend it.

  1. Wowie. Zowie. I kept expecting it to pop! Amazing! And brave observers on the sidewalk.

    This is easily one of the most dramatic videos I’ve ever seen. I can’t stand it when that little point starts nudging through the top of the balloon. I was jumping out of my chair! Nice work!
