GPS: Gravity Fountain

Jesse and Chloe play in the water every chance they get. While they were at their favorite water park, they got to thinking: what does it take to make a high-spraying fountain? They went to the Montshire Museum in Norwich, Vermont, to do some hands-on experimenting with water. They have an outdoor water exhibit called a rill, which is a little stream. So they asked: how can we make a gravity-fed water fountain that shoots 20 feet into the air?
