I can’t think of a polite title for this one…

…couple of puns come to mind but as I don’t use bad language (unless something really, really, really hurts or I am very, very, very annoyed) that is where they shall remain.

We had friends over on Monday for some early Science week fun.

We started with mechanical hands.

We followed the basic plan from here but simplified somewhat.  We used plastic straws taped into place for the bones and had 3 individual pieces for each finger, trimmed into points at each end so they didn’t catch as the fingers bent.

We started by mushing up food with a bit of washing liquid (saliva) to represent chewing.

20140311The food then travelled to the stomach where it was mixed with acid (vinegar) and churned.
