Welcome to Oliver’s Science Lab! This video features Oliver as he shows us how to create a tornado in a jar. All you need is vinegar, water, a teaspoon, a cup, a jar, dish wash liquid, and food coloring.


Fill the jar ¾ full with water, add a teaspoon of vinegar, a teaspoon of dish soap, and put the lid on, and swirl the jar in a circular motion. That’s it! You can add food coloring to make it look even cooler.


Oliver also has some cool facts about tornadoes, like how big they can get, and even some safety tips.
