Steve Spangler Science: Solar Bag Experiment (Harness the Power of the Sun)

The amazing 50 ft long floating bag!

A Solar Bag is a long plastic bag made from a very thin plastic and colored black to absorb solar energy. The heated air inside the bag provides buoyancy and causes the bag to float. Over the years, it’s become a very popular science demo for teachers to share with their students as they explore the properties of air.
