At the faire: Scientific Toys from Daily-Use Materials

Posted on 17 Sep 2014

Scientific toys

Hélder Ferreira is an engineer working at the Ciência Viva network, namely in the Lagos Science Centre, who likes to recycle materials in order to build toys and artifacts to demonstrate scientific principles at the Science Centre activities.

He presents us Scientific Toys from Daily-Use Materials.

Using straws, pushpins, styrofoam, toothpicks, aluminium foil, old christmas lights, wire and common batteries they propose themselves to build two scientific toys. The first will be a big hand to explain the Bernoulli principle and the second will show and motivate the understanding of an electric circuit.
