What can I learn in 3 minutes?

I'm in the second round of interviews for this competitive science summer camp teaching position. This includes presenting a three-minute lesson on anything in particular that targets K-5 kids. My problem: I've never taught kids before, and I'm pretty sure those I'm up against have. What do you think would be a good, short demonstration that gives kids some hands-on experience and that would also blow their minds?

Difficulty: It should be relative simple to perform, plus I need to know how to explain that phenomena in simple terms.
I've looked at several teaching-related sites,but most require something that might take longer than 3 minutes to set up and demonstrate. Or maybe I'm looking in all the wrong places.
Thanks in advance!
