2014 Faraday Show

The theme for 2014 is Physics in the Kitchen! Will you sink when you run across a pool of corn starch water (oobleck)? Why do toasts land on the floor butter-side down? How does a microwave work (and what happens if you put something in it that you shouldn’t)? What happens when you mix ingredients – can you unmix them? Can you see how water in a pot is heated up? Why is it not a good idea to put your hand over a boiling kettle?
