This was the first series of ExpeRimental, all loosely linked to physics.
Andrea and his sons Alessandro and Serafino build rubber band cannons from crisp tins and drinks bottles, and use them to explore projectile motion... and knock down any target they can think of.
Oly and her daughter Viola build a home-made lava lamp and use a surprising property of citrus fruits to explore the science of floating and sinking.
Mei and her daughter Mischa learn why bubbles are always round and find out how to make giant bubbles with a couple of wooden spoons and some string.
Sophie and her son Hector explore the magical world of static electricity by making charged objects move without touching them.
Mark and his girls Sasha and Lara build and race their own balloon powered cars.
Aoife and her children Lorenzo and Alice become engineers for the day, building structures out of spaghetti and marshmallows, and investigating the properties of materials.
Petra and her son Adam try out an amazing trick with a coat hanger and some string, and think about the science of sound.
Jackie and her son Alex make a homemade parachute to transport an egg safely to the ground, and explore what it means to do a fair test.
Gail and her daughters make amazing balancing structures and explore the science of stability.
