Cousin Willies Popcorn
Conclusion
MATERIALS
Interesting Facts about popcorn kernels
Popcorn kernels can pop up to 3 feet in the air

Each kernel of popcorn has a tiny amount of water inside

Kernels you find at the bottom of the bowl that do not pop are called old maids. They are too dry to have any pop left in him.
Hypothesis and source
I think Cousin Willies will have the
least amount of unpopped kernels.
