WMG Experiments at Home

Welcome! This page is where we are planning to add resources for small experiments that we can all do at home at the moment. We will be updating it as regularly as we can and would love to have suggestions either through wmgoutreach@warwick.ac.uk or via twitter using the hashtag #WMGOutreach.

3D Printed Science Tricks

You might have heard of 3D printers before – it’s a robot that can squeeze melted plastic into just the shape we want it and make products from ideas into prototypes within hours. You may even have seen that people are using 3D printers to make PPE for healthcare workers at the moment. WMG are using 3D printers a little bigger than this one to do just that. Here are 3 tricks with 3D printed parts.

Graduate Trainee Engineers' STEM demonstrations.

Unfortunately during British Science Week we did have to cancel some events to keep our presenters and students in schools safe. To make sure that no one missed out we recorded videos with some of WMG's Graduate Trainee Engineers - Jacob Compton, Lauren Cooper, Josh Wallis and Lucas Bartol-Bibb demonstrating some really simple DIY STEM experiments.

How to build a pulley from toy construction sets

Find your construction toy sets and get ready - it's time to build a crane! We look at pulleys, how they work, what forces are involved and why this simple mechanism makes it so much easier to lift things.

Something to raise the spirits (amongst other things).
