Fun with straws and atmospheric pressure.

Director's Notes:

Team The Extrawdinary Experimenters had just this to say about their film:

Fun with straws explains about sucking up a liquid and atmospheric pressure.

The film was made by four students, aged under 11, with help from one adult.

Winner, IOP Best SciCast Physics Film (Primary), 2010

SciCast Notes:

This film is genius. The costumes are brilliant, the camerawork and sound are clear, the script is excellent, the demonstrations work, the explanations convincing, and the performances terrific. I even like the closing gag, which got a good solid laugh at the Awards Ceremony this year.

Truly excellent stuff.
