The students at Westminster Independent School investigate different sail designs to determine the most reliable shapes and materials. Breaking up into three groups, the students begin by testing what shape provides the most propulsive force and then experiment with different materials to find the combination that is the most effective tensile structure. To carry out your own tests, you'll need a 1L milk carton cut in half, scissors, plasticine, straws, and a variety of materials for the sails.

Junior scientists Josephine and Philippa demonstrate how to test your friends' fungiform papillae concentration and determine who amongst them is a super taster. Fungiform papillae are mushroom-like bumps capped with tastebuds on the tip and sides of our tongues and help distinguish the five tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami (savoury). To start testing, you'll need blue food dye, a cotton tip, a bowl, a card with a 7mm hole punched out and a pad for recording results.

Junior scientist Braeden shows us how to build an anemometer and begin collecting data about the speed and behaviour of wind moving around your house or school. Did you know anemometer design has stayed relatively the same since its development in the 15th century? To build this weather instrument yourself, you will need four small paper cups, cardboard, scissors, a ruler, a stapler, a thump tack, some modelling clay, a permanent marker and a pencil with an eraser.

Junior scientist Will demonstrates how to create a homely habitat for your decapod friends. You will need crushed shells, a clean branch, salt crystals, two dishes, a heat pad, a thermometer, an aquarium with a lid and extra shells for the future. Hermit crabs have soft, asymmetrical abdomens that they conceal in scavenged shells, upgrading as they grow. Hermit crabs are also known to use plastic lids or other debris in lieu of mollusc shells, due to increased coastal litter.

Junior scientist Lilli demonstrates how to grow your gummy lollies using osmosis. To do this experiment at home, you'll need some gummy lollies, three bowls, water, sugar, a pen, a rule and some paper for recording your results. Did you know that osmosis is the movement of solvent molecules through a semi-permeable membrane? In this case, osmosis is occurring when the water moves into the body of our gummy lollies.

Junior scientists Lucy and Brittany use some cool science to make a delicious snack in no time. To follow along, you'll need milk, vanilla extract, sugar, small and large zip lock bags, rock salt and four cups of ice. Mixing salt and ice creates a frigorific mixture that causes the ice to melt and cool again because of saltwater's lower freezing point. This process of repeated cooling continues until the mixture finds temperature equilibrium, or until the ice-cream is ready!
