A container is filled with water. The water is poured out of the container until it appears empty. In a few minutes, more water naturally appears in the container and it is also poured out. The lota bowl is a classic part of many magic shows. A version of it has been around since the time of the ancient Greeks. The apparent “magical” properties of the container make it an excellent device to teach problem-solving in many science classes.
