The Naked Scientists

TOTD was recently given a book called Crisp Packet Fireworks that is full of experiments you can try at home. This includes, rather remarkably, working out the speed of light using margarine and a microwave oven.

There are loads for you to try at The Naked Scientists web site

Be warned though, some look quite dangerous. For example, passing mains electricity through a gherkin in the wonderfully named Gherkinator!
