Science Buddies has a really awesome looking experiment to make Model Rivers with Cornmeal, Sand, & Water. It took me a minute to figure out that the rest of the info (with great pictures) is hiding behind tabs like “background” and “materials”. But, then the whole thing got really exciting.
The project is set up to study river erosion. What if we widened the vision to study continental scale flooding?
Can you imagine planning a way to pour water down the slope from a much wider opening? What would happen when the whole thing was tipped at a steep angle so the water flows really quickly? What happens if you flatten the slope some so the water flows more slowly?
I bet you would get some very interesting results to share!
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. Proverbs 8:11-12
