A group of refraction demonstrations involving glasses of water.

Director's Notes:

This team investigates the refraction of light through a glass of water and someone’s patience runs out.

Based on experiment from an Institute of Physics postcard — which we think means the Marvin and Milo stuff, though we can’t work out which one exactly.

SciCast Notes:

I love these well-rehearsed group pieces, and this is a well-written piece of theatre. Good steady camerawork too — when the camera moves, it’s moving for a reason. The lensing demonstration (with the arrows on paper) is particularly well done.

Great film.
