The Pocket Science Funfair has extra pockets of delight, from its guests:
Richard Cope presents his new game of Elements Kapa
: like Top Trumps, but featuring the elements of the Universe; so you can enjoy the game and learn an important thing or two. And the cards are beautiful to play with. Is it difficult? You can't get more elementary.
: Tree expert Gervais Sawyer shows the very special nature of wood, using his high-power microscope. His display is serious
fun, unlike our pictures of wood-grain-that-looks-like-a-face, below right and left.
: Today you can experience some serious scientific research, as Dori Balczo and Natasha Thoday test the public to see whether memory games do actually improve memory. This is the one kind of game where kids often do better than adults. So see if you can win the Brighton Memory Game
, and help the research as well.
: Our honoured guests will be your goodselves.
