Make your own water tornado

A tornado, also called twister or cyclone, is a violent rotating column of air extending between the Earth’s surface and the base of a thunderstorm. This vortex of wind, usually funnel-shaped, can be very destructive. It can destroy large buildings, uproot trees, drive sticks into trees and hurl cars hundreds of yards away.

But in this experiment, we will make a water tornado safely at home. Let’s see how a rotating vortex is formed.

What you need

  • a tall glass or jar (lid is good but optional)
  • water
  • not exactly understood by scientists yet, but they are continuously studying and analyzing.

    Here is a video explaining what we do know about tornadoes.
