Who'd have thought something as simple as a wooden ramp could teach so much about science? Of course, it's helpful when it's 2 stories tall. Explore friction with frogs, rice, one detective and two books stuck together!
Phil tries to max-out a boat that propels itself using just water and gravity. We pour over water specifically and fluids in general. Heavy air, fluid sand, Archimedes and the metric system; this overflows with science!
How do you max out an egg drop? With pumpkins, of course! Material science is the focus of this episode: nitinol, ulexite, carbon nanotubes, hagfish slime, aerogel and a great deal of squashed pumpkins.
