Ever wondered how cyclones work? Join junior scientist Elizabeth as she shows us how to make a cyclone in a bottle and simulate the basics of these circular storms. All you need is two large plastic bottles, some glue, water, a drill and some glitter. To make your cyclone glow in the dark, just replace the water and glitter with tonic water and a black light. Tonic contains an ingredient called quinine that fluoresces in UV light.
