Since Pepsi is sponsoring this grant that I want, I figured to give them a shout-out with Science.
Behold, the tipping soda can:
So I was 100% bored during middle and high school lunches that this became my entertainment most of the time. When the can is 2/3 empty (or filled to the second "P" in Pepsi), try to see if you can get the can to balance on it's lower rim. I also liked spinning it in that position too. Kids can do it too. It might keep them occupied for 5 minutes or so when you're trying to down your food...
P.S. What would I do now that sodas are banned from many schools? Not sure, probably sleep through lunch.
