A fair few of us Brits were at The Amaz!ng Meeting in Las Vegas this year. One or two of you were kind enough to help me with the crrrraaazy event that was the World Record Spoon Bend.
For those who don't know, we had 816 people simultaneously perform a spoon bend trick as part of Richard Wiseman's talk
There's now a video of the event, a video of the science behind metal bending, and further info at www.spoonscience.com
This weekend I will also be working on some merchandise so those who were part of it can boast of the 'bender' status in t-shirt or mug form.
The site currently just features the spoon video, but it's my intention to develop it into a resource for videos featuring science done with household objects, for use by teachers, parents and anyone who likes that sort of thing. Any input, suggestions, links would be most welcome.
