Science Challenge – Can you solve it?

About Science Challenge – Can you solve it?

Come and join us in the ASCUS Lab for Science Challenge – Can you solve it?, a hands-on workshop developed by Mareike Wallrabe, a German chemistry student and ASCUS Lab intern

How do you balance a bunch of screws on the head of another screw? Can you extinguish tea lights without blowing them out? How do you remove a cork from the inside of a wine bottle and can you burn your money without destroying it (maybe you should start trying it with normal paper…)? These and other challenges are all part of the upcoming workshop using everyday science phenomena hidden in your daily life.

During this workshop you will get an introduction to some of the common science principles behind why there should be water on a slide in a pool, why you can’t drink with a 5 metre long straw and what’s important if you want to build paper airplanes that don’t crash after 2 metres.

Come along, join this workshop, defeat the challenges and become the master of table tricks! Or at least you understand what to do and impress your friends afterwards!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Science Challenge – Can you solve it? are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
