The Faraday Show is UBC’s annual science lecture, designed for children, presented by the Department of Physics & Astronomy. The theme this year is Physics in the Kitchen! Will you sink when you run across a pool of corn starch water (oobleck)? Why do toasts land on the floor butter-side down? How does a microwave work (and what happens if you put something in it that you shouldn’t)? What happens when you mix ingredients – can you unmix them? Can you “see” how water in a pot is heated up? Why is it not a good idea to put your hand over a boiling kettle?

WHEN: 2-3:30pm on Sunday, December 7, 2014 COST: FREE! But bring non-perishable food items to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank!
