If you're anything like me, science can seem like a bit of a snore. All those test tubes and lab reports do nothing to excite me. But when you move the science lesson to the swimming pool? Now you've caught my attention! Normally, my eyes would glaze over at "constructive wave interference," but this innovative dad found a fun way to teach it to his kids. And let's just say the result was epic!

If you're wondering exactly what "constructive wave interference" is, well, it's defined as a pair of waves crossing each other to create a new wave. So when these two waves meet, they make a mega wave like you see in the video. Just a few minutes ago, I couldn't have told you that, so that just goes to show what an amazing, yet fun lesson this really is! Way to go, Dad!

COMMENT and let us know if you'll be trying this experiment this summer!
