(CBS) -- Entertaining and educating? A video on YouTube shows how a nuclear chain fission reaction occurs using -- wait for it -- ping pong balls and rat traps! Watch the video below (the actual reaction begins around 1:48 in).
The experiment was conducted for an AP Chemistry Class at the Horizon Science Academy Cleveland High School (HSA). It was done in conjunction with the school's video club (double-education WIN!) and used around 300 mousetraps and 600 ping pong balls in the culminating experiment to show the reaction.
