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?

This show is for children of ALL AGES, and adults who are young at heart!
