Junior scientist Erika shows us how to cut through a solid block of ice using only a length of wire, a weight and two tables. Watch as the pressure from the weight causes the wire and frozen water molecules to collide, releasing a tiny amount of heat that melts the ice for just long enough for the wire to pass through, with the ice resolidifying once it returns to its normal pressure. This process of melting ice under pressure is called regelation.

Junior scientist Josephine shows us how to split a light bean and expose all the colours of the rainbow. The light emitted from a regular torch appears white, but when passed through a prism it changes speed and disperses across the differing wavelengths, giving you each colour in the visible spectrum. To conduct this experiment at home, you will need a few torches, a glass prism, red, green and blue cellophane, rubber bands and a darkened room.
