“What Happens Next?” showcases an array of mentally stimulating and thought provoking demos with discrepant outcomes.
You show the students the initial set up and run the demo up to a point, then you stop everything and ask the students to predict the outcome.
A mirror and a small toy are placed on a desktop so that you can see the reflection of the toy in the mirror. When a laser pointer is shone at the reflection, what happens to the toy?
Here’s another one:
A slinky spring is held vertically by its top end. A lump of blu-tack is attached to the bottom of the slinky (which is hanging loose). When the top of the slinky is dropped, will the lower end with the blu-tack attached move downwards, stay stationary, or move upwards?
Tea/coffee and biscuits/cake will be provided, so if you have any allergies (or requests!) please let me know.
