Beakman challenge: drink punch out of a glass with two straws: one inside the glass and the other outside. The straw outside of the glass causes the air pressure inside the mouth to match the outside of the mouth. Now you don't have the ability to get the liquid to move into the mouth due to the air pressure change since it's the same.
Beakman challenge: he uses a playing card to cover the top of a vase with water in it. He then tips the vase over and the card stays in place and the water doesn't come out due to air pressure.
Beakman challenge: crush a soda can in a bowl of water without pushing it down with your hands. Beakman heats a little bit of water in the soda can, turns it upside down into the bowl of water and shows how the can crushes. Then he uses a short animation clip to explain how air pressure caused this.
