Rebecca: I'm Rebecca Brayton and welcome to watchmojo.com. Here at the science 26 exhibit, it's encourage to explore, try different activities and take home all kinds of new knowledge that can use in their daily lives. This artificial tornado is created by a fan, which draws the air upwards. This air column is rotated by gentle air so we can see the whirl wind. A fog machine adds water droplets into the air column. The warm air rises and begins to dissolve and this situation it converts and form tornado. Here, we can see that a body is more stable when its center of gravity is lower. The weight suspended from the unicycle, places the centre of gravity below the wire. As long as you are attached to the unicycle, it is impossible to fall. Heat sensitive liquid crystals change color according to their temperature. Each color matches up with a specific temperature range. The molecules that form these liquid crystals are aligned with each other in layers. Here in our next exhibit, we learn that a soap molecule has two ends; one of these ends is attracted to water and the other is repelled by it. The ends are attracted to water fit themselves between the water molecules and result in the enormous film that -- young and old. As illustrated in this exhibit, we noticed that the rotating disc folds our eyes and makes us think we are leaning to one side. As a result, our perception of vertical direction is affected.
