Glowing Gatorade Trick

Introduction: Glowing Gatorade Trick

About: I like inventing, experimenting, rockets, film making, and more! I consider myself a teenaged genius. I feel that with enough time I could build anything.

This is a cool trick I discovered while playing with a book light and a bottle of Gatorade.

    Just a thought - Try illuminating it with an ultra-violet LED.  One of those little keyring bank-note testers would do.
