Pressure + volume experiments:Remembering Irish Scientist Robert Boyle

Make a magic diver in this fun science workshop for 9-12 year olds, remembering famous Irish scientist Robert Boyle for Heritage Week 2020

To investigate the relationship between volume and pressure of gases we are going to make a magic diver that will sink and float at your command. All you need to be able to work this magic is a little knowledge of Robert Boyle, the famous Irish scientist and his experiments.

To fully participate you will need the following

An empty coke or 7up bottle - a 2 litre one that you can see through is ideal, a paperclip - a plastic coated coloured one is easiest to use, a tin foil tray like you get rice from the take away in, scissors, a bendy plastic straw (a straight one will work if you don't have a bendy one) approx 20g plastercine, a 1 litre jug or a deep bow l2.5 litres, water, cloth for cleaning up and spillages.
