Junior scientist Missy demonstrates a colourful experiment that explains the law of conservation of mass, or why freshwater floats on salt water. This separation of density is seen in naturally occurring phenomena like estuaries, anchialine pools and underwater caves. When fresh water and salt water meet, their different densities stratify and collect in layers.
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.
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 Harry explains how to construct an amplifier for your smartphone using a paper towel roll, 2 milk bottles, a pen, and a pair of scissors.
