 This demo is filled with tension and suspense as we test the science of pressure distribution with a bed 100 nails…AAH! No audience participants are used but an unfortunate balloon will give up the ghost for science. Audience members build and find out the key to a roman bridge’s support system still in use today. How does a 2 liter bottle of liquid balance at a 45 degree angle and not fall over? What is the most stable shape to use for building larges structures? Discovering the secret of riding a unicycle on a tight wire is all about discovering what the center of gravity is. An audience member stands on eggs (raw in the shell) without breaking them…well maybe one or two. Wow! Now that’s egg-citing science!
