Fun with straws and atmospheric pressure.
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
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.
