    Science Toys

    Make toys at home with common household materials, often in only a few minutes, that demonstrate fascinating scientific principles.

    PI for you

    Pi10k will convert the first 10,000 digits of pi into a musical piece. First of all you have to “select ten notes, and your corresponding selection translates into an integer. The first note you select will equal “1?, the second will equal “2?, and so on. As your computer cycles through the digits of pi, the corresponding notes will play.” Not sure you’ll want to hear the tune twice but i like music & mathematics and think it’s a neat project so thought I should share!

    Nice Primmy,

    I'm sure the image you posted was purely co-incidental!

    When my kids were small we used to have lots of fun devising our own amusement. Our favorite involved cats and a catapult!

    Sounds like some nefarious Animal Testing with pheromones ...:(

    If Mickey is a mouse, and Pluto is a dog, what is Goofy?

    How many muscles does a cat have in each ear?

    How many teeth does a normal adult dog have?

    what is the largest piece of fruit the human digestive system can pass?

    I actually had a working model of that engine in my last DeLorian...until I topped up the radiator.......bad idea.....bad idea.......anyway I managed to make a tea-tray and a bust of Castro out of the resultant papier-mache....so it wasn't a total disaster.......
