Junior scientist Bella explains the lifestyle of the most famous aquatic arthropod, the lobster, and dissects a specimen to explore the anatomy of these clawed crustaceans. Lobsters have a tough exoskeleton, or carapace, which will require strong scissors to pierce. Once below the protective exterior, you will find everything from digestive glands and feathery gills to the tail's main artery and intestine (hindgut).

Junior scientist Elizabeth demonstrates how to make candles from bees' cera alba (aka beeswax) and experiments with making candles last even longer. The continuous burn of a candle is due to the chain of events caused when the wick is lit and the wax begins to melt. The melted wax is then absorbed up the wick, via capillary action, fuelling the flame and continuing the process. To make your own self-sustaining system, you'll have a few sheets of beeswax, a wick, matches and a lighter.
