A very simple and fun science experiment. Take a piece of string and use it to lift up an ice cube. Fun to challenge older kids with as well :)

It took a few tries to get the string to stick. Using a small ice cube might help. We also used kosher salt, maybe table salt would work better.


I'd recommend this project.

It cost about $0

It took us 20 minutes
