Everyday Science.

It’s amazing how common demonstrations of scientific principles are in every day life, like the video below:

Such a simple thing, a slinky walking down a treadmill, but it aptly demonstrates the principles of kinetic/potential energy, friction and a whole host of other physical science concepts. This is why I’m such a big fan of Mythbusters as whilst their experiments aren’t exactly rigorous science they do aptly demonstrate many basic scientific principles in a way that’s easily understood. Plus they have massive explosions nearly every episode and those never go astray 😉
