Sergio Rossi

Water: the world's strangest substance!

workshop ages 10-13 – 60 minutes; 25 participants


Water is the most widely used substance in the world, but are you sure you really know it? The best way to find it out is to experiment with it! Archimedes knew this very well. By playing with water, he made discoveries that still leave us gaping. With our hands soaking, we will have fun and put some of this great inventor's experiments into practice.
