Mr Eldridge at http://www.hawesps.posterous.com said on a comment ” why does a coin always fall of a lemon in a bowl of water?” we decided to find out. First we put the lemon in the bowl and found some coins and gathered round the bowl. It was difficult but we tried and tried then I got a flat Discovery boat coin to see if that worked but no. Someone said “would an orange work?” so we fetched an orange and no, that didn’t work. It didn’t work because the lemon was round and kept rolling over when the coin went on, even the slightest wobble made the lemon roll over.

  1. Hey well done guys! You were quick off the mark! This is a great activity to have at a Christmas fair for fundraising. Everybody has out vinegar into bicarbonate of soda … but have you tried putting mentos into a big bottle of diet coke? Stand well back! If you can’t get ‘mentos’ up your way, I’ll send you a packet.
