ideas: June 2008 Archives


Here’s another competition for you: Capture It!, from our friends at Films for Learning. Entry is open to schools affiliated with the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, and there are excellent prizes on offer.

Be very very quick, though, as the deadline for this one is June 13th.


Here’s an experiment you probably shouldn’t repeat at home. Not because it’s particularly dangerous, mind — more that it’s going to really really hurt. Lots.

Tom Scott tests out the often-repeated notion that you can remove your fingerprints by soaking your hands in pineapple. His film is brilliant, even if the experiment… umm… isn’t the most sensible I’ve ever seen.

Credit for dedication, though.
