My students have a whale of a time playing with this colorful "jellyfish"! Of course, they find it a lot more challenging explaining WHY it behaves the way it does! Lots of brainstorming while playing with it, usually leads them to very insightful and correct answers!

The Jellyfish Cartesian Diver can be used by students to study the principle of density. Cartesian divers demonstrate opposing forces of buoyancy (upward) and gravity (downward). The fun comes when students squeeze the bottle to change the density of the diver. Students can take a simplistic or an advanced mathematical approach to the physics problem.
