Everyday Science

Simple scientific explanations of the world around us.

What do plants eat, do they scream when you cut off a branch? What is electricity, where does it come from, where does it go when you turn off the switch? If the moon comes out at night, why do we see it in the middle of the day? What is soil, where does it come from, why is it so important to protect it from erosion? What the hell is Chemistry, and who cares?

There is no need for any previous science knowledge. This course is for those who are curious and want to understand the world around us a little better.

Bring: An old fashioned school pad and biro.
