The flow rate of water is at the center of this episode of the "House of Little Scientists". The young researchers are observing that water can flow better through stones than through sand – and during their own experiments they find out why. The small researchers use their new knowledge right away in a very practical way: They are setting up irrigation sieves for the plants - with which they can individually adjust the water flow for each plant species.
