Mess It Up With Megan: Exploding Watermelon


For this weeks experiment you will only need a few things:

  • A watermelon
  • A lot of rubber bands
  • A stand
  • Eyewear to protect your eyes

Here are the steps to complete the experiment:

  1. Place the watermelon on the stand
  2. Keep placing rubber bands around the middle of the melon until you get a reaction.

This experiment looks as surface tension and how much tension the surface of a watermelon can take before it fails.

Special thanks to Nikki Crosthwaite for the help as well as Calvin Inman!
