Water and Maths go well together

Highfield Campus

Building: B56

Room: Student Centre

Age suitable for: 7+

We all know what water is, but there are many aspects of it that we take for granted.

Why are the rain drops on a flower the size of a grain and not of a pebble? But water is also "peculiar".

We all know that wood floats and metal sinks. But in one of our demonstrations, you will be able to float a metal paper clip. How does it happens?

There is a simple explanation and you just to have to come and see it!

And then, if you are really keen, you can do the maths and find out what is the largest paper clip you can float and what would happen if you were floating paper clips on the moon.
