Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and equals approximately 3.14. Did you know that Pi Day falls on 14 March, which is of course 3.14 in American date layout?⠀ ⠀ Did you also know that this year, more than 2,200 years after Archimedes worked out pi as 3.141, Google employee Emma Haruka Iwao calculated pi to 31.4 trillion digits, nearly nine trillion more than the previous best?⠀ ⠀ Emma became fascinated with pi aged 12. “I loved how it just keeps going on forever”🌀 We wonder if she’ll inspire some of our curiosity cadets to be STEMsational record breakers? . 📷 credit @welch_rocks:⠀ . #happypiday#pi#piday#maths#physics#worldrecord#GWR#Archimedes#EmmaHarukaIwao#mathsisawesome#STEMfacts#STEMed#STEMkids#paintedrocks#paintedrocksofinstagram#sciencerocks#curiositycadets#thecuriositybox#getcurious

Albert Einstein was born 140 years ago today! ⠀ ⠀ When he was five years old his father showed him a simple pocket compass. Einstein was mesmerized. What force exerted itself on the little needle to make it point in a single direction? This question stayed with Einstein for many years and has been noted as the beginning of his fascination with science.⠀ ⠀ We like to think of him as the first Curiosity Cadet!⠀ ⠀ #einstein#alberteinstein#einstein140#einsteinbirthday#sciencehero#sciencelegend#physics#onthisday#otd#curiosity#curiousminds#curiosityledlearning#curiouskids#curiositycadets#curiositybox#thecuriositybox#getcurious

On 6 March 1869, Dmitri Mendeleev’s periodic table was announced to the Russian Chemical Society ⚗️ ⠀ ⠀ Mendeleev devised his system to classify the elements at a time when only 60 or so chemical elements were known – about half of today’s count.⠀ ⠀ Fast forward 150 years and here’s our awesome Bake Off Lab Champion, Andrew Smyth, at the Science Museum in London today celebrating this special anniversary of the periodic table with these glorious cupcakes!⠀ ⠀ "I’m claiming this to be the world’s tastiest (and least poisonous) periodic table. Celebrating 150 years of the periodic table @sciencemuseum, and also for my nerves being intact after these survived a solo train journey 😂😂😂 Really proud of how these turned out, 1 for each attendee!! Chocolate cupcake base with whipped white chocolate ganache (coloured according to their group) all topped with a sugarpaste topper, PHEW!”⠀ ⠀ Amazing work Andrew, we’re impressed and we bet they taste delicious! 😋⠀ ⠀ #PeriodicTable#IYPT#IYPT2019#periodictableoftheelements#dmitrimendeleev#ispyaperiodictable#chemistrybakes#chemistry#cupcakes#chocolate#ediblechem#bakineering#sciencemuseum#sciencecakes#coolscience#sciencerocks#bakeofflab#sciencefacts#STEMed#scienceeducation#sciencelearning#homeeducation#thecuriositybox#getcurious

Every month we introduce our cadets to an inspirational scientist and this month
Every month we introduce our cadets to an inspirational scientist and this month they’re learning all about Dr Lynda Coughlan, aka Virus Nerdette, a virologist based at the Jenner Institute.⠀ ⠀ Lynda’s been sharing her work on viruses, DNA and vaccines with our cadets, and she answered these quick-fire questions...⠀ ⠀ 🔬 What advice would you give to your 7-11 yr old self? "Work hard and believe in yourself. You can be anything you want to be."⠀ ⠀ 🔬 What was your favourite thing to do when you were in primary school?⠀ "Although we didn’t do science as a subject in school in Ireland, I knew I wanted to be a scientist from a very young age. I had a microscope at home with a projector and my whole family had to spend weekends looking at fly wings, beetle legs and animal hair."⠀ ⠀ 🔬 Who is your hero?⠀ "Rosalind Franklin who helped us to understand the structure of DNA. I also love Jane Goodall (studied chimpanzee behaviour) and David Attenborough, whose TV shows are just amazing."⠀ ⠀ 🔬 What do you love about your work?⠀ "I learn something new and exciting every day."⠀ ⠀ 🔬 What's the most awesome thing you've done so far? "Engineer viruses that help prevent or cure diseases instead of causing them."⠀ ⠀ We’d love to know if any of our cadets want to be virologists having learned all about Lynda!⠀ ⠀ #scientist#rolemodel#sciencechampion#curiositychampion#inspiringkids#virologist#dna#vaccines#healthyme#womeninscience#womeninSTEM#kidslovescience#scienceforkids#coolscience#sciencerocks#homelearning#homeed#homeeduk#scienceathome#subscriptionbox#sciencekits#STEMsubscriptionbox#thecuriositybox#curiositybox#getcurious

It's tied in beautifully with his current school topic which is all about the body and our senses so he is now completely hooked! ⠀ ⠀ Zak also thought it was brilliant to be able to ask his big brother to try some of his poo 👍😂😂"⠀ ⠀ Good sharing Zak! 💩😉⠀ ⠀ #ediblepoo#healthyme#humanbody#digestion#funscience#scienceisfun#scienceforkids#kidslovescience#primaryscience#scienceeducation#scienceathome#scienceexperiments#sciencesctivities#STEMed#STEMeducation#STEMkids#STEMfun#STEMlearning#curiositybox#thecuriositybox#getcurious

Our Curiosity Champion for this month's Codebreakers box is Helen Needham, inspirational founder of MeDecoded. She started out as a computer programmer and then became a management consultant, because she was interested in how information flows through a bank.⠀ ⠀ Helen told us: "It is a bit like being a detective, and a puzzle solver. I have to speak to lots of people and read lots of documents, to find clues about how things work. When I have all the clues, I put them together and try to work out how to make things better.⠀ ⠀ For a long time, I struggled with the people around me and we didn’t always understand each other. People were the biggest puzzle, and I spent a lot of time trying to decode them to work them out. Last year I found out that I am autistic, and this has helped me understand why I struggled so much. My son, aged 9, is also autistic and he showed me that there are so many great things about being autistic when you are supported by people who understand you. He says that he is “my inspiration for all things autism”.⠀ ⠀ Now I tell the people around me that I am autistic and I write online about what it is like to be different, as I think that the world needs people who think differently. We often see things that other people miss."⠀ ⠀ We asked Helen some quick fire questions...⠀ ⠀ 💡 What advice would you give to your 7-11 yr old self?⠀ "Don’t try to change to fit in, because the world needs people who think differently."⠀ ⠀ 📚 When you were in primary school what was your favourite thing to do?⠀ "Reading, my favourite stories were about Nancy Drew (a young female detective)."⠀ ⠀ ❤️ What do you love about your work?⠀ "I get to solve puzzles and problems for a living."⠀ ⠀ 🦸‍♂️ Who is your hero?⠀ "My Dad."⠀ ⠀ 🧠 What's the most awesome thing you've done so far?⠀ "Help people realise how amazing they are to have a brain which works differently."⠀ ⠀ #codebreakers#codes#crackingcodes#morsecode#semaphore#cipherwheel#neurodiversity#autism#autistic#differentnotdifficult#curiositychampion#thecuriositybox#curiositybox#rolemodel#inspiringkids#STEMkids#STEMed#STEMlearning#homelearning#getcurious

Ever wondered about the science of popcorn? 🍿 It’s Popcorn Day so here’s the lowdown... ⠀ ⠀ Popcorn will only pop if the moisture content of the kernel is at 14%. Precisely the amount of water needed to turn to steam quickly to create the pressure and cause the kernel to explode. ⠀ ⠀ Too dry and it won’t explode, too wet and there’s too much water inside to make stream and create the pressure! 💥⠀ ⠀ Some super Saturday science courtesy of our buddy @mylegoman2 🙌⠀ ⠀ What are you waiting for?

Our December box Sublime Slime was a real hit with our cadets! We love this Curiosity Cadet’s reaction to the noise the Elf Snot makes when she pushes it back into the pot... it sounds like it farts!⠀ ⠀ What actually happens is the air bubbles get trapped underneath the slime then, when you poke your finger in, the air escapes through narrow gaps making a very satisfying trumping sound! ⠀ ⠀ Our Elf Snot also glows in the dark making it a truly awesome non-Newtonian fluid.⠀ ⠀ What did our other cadets think of Sublime Slime?⠀ ⠀ #slime#sublimeslime#elfsnot#glowinthedark#nonnewtonianfluid#scienceforkids#funscience#scienceisfun#kidslovescience#scienceforkids#scienceathome#handsonscience#handsonlearning#sciencelearning#scienceactivities#experimentsforkids#sciencekits#prisci#homelearning#homeed#thecuriositybox#curiositybox#curiositycadets#curiouskids#getcurious#STEMkids#STEMed#STEMlearning#girlsinSTEM#STEMgirls#sundayscience

Our Founder and Head of Explosions @reneewatson77 was over the moon to meet @angeladsaini engineer, science writer and broadcaster at the ASE annual conference yesterday. ⠀ ⠀ Renee can’t wait to read Angela’s book ‘Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story'. ⠀ ⠀ Copies of this important book are being sent to state schools thanks to a crowdfunding campaign by Jess Wade and Claire Murray, with donations matched by publisher 4th Estate. What a great initiative!⠀ ⠀ Thank you Angela for your very kind words about The Curiosity Box, we can’t wait to hear what you and your son make of it 😊⠀ ⠀ We wonder who Renee will meet at the ASE Conf today..? ⠀ ⠀ #womeninstem#womeninscience#STEMgirls#girlsinSTEM#inferior#thisgirlcan#rebelgirls#scienceforall#sciencerocks#ASEconf#ASE2019#ASEchat#scienceeducation#primaryscience#prisci#curiositybox#thecuriositybox#sciencekits#subscriptionbox#getcurious@jessjess1988

You might remember that in our December edition of Curiosity Bytes we discussed which is better, a real Christmas tree or a fake one.⠀ ⠀ The Carbon Trust told us the carbon footprint of a real pine is lower than a plastic tree, especially if you dispose of it responsibly so we were delighted when one of our members got in touch to tell us how he recycles his Christmas trees - even better! ♻️🎄⠀ ⠀ "Even more carbon friendly with Christmas trees is to do what we have done in the past, buy a small rooted and potted tree, then after Christmas put it in the next pot size up with a bit more soil and keep it in the garden ready to bring in the next year.⠀ ⠀ We found that you can do this for about 6 or 7 Christmases before it gets too tall to fit in the house or too heavy to shift, at which point we planted them in our garden, and they have grown considerably since then to give us a mini woodland wildlife habitat.”⠀ ⠀ By recycling their trees Dave and his family have created a haven for wildlife in their garden. "We have a fox that comes most days, slow worms, an occasional hedgehog, the nationally rare stag beetle and we've positively identified 45 different bird species."⠀ ⠀ So if you bought a potted tree this year and you haven't yet taken it to your nearest recycling point, why not plant it in the garden?⠀ ⠀ Don't despair if you do have a plastic tree. If you take care of it and use it no less than 10 times, you'll have evened out the carbon footprint score.⠀ ⠀ #fakeorreal#realorplastic#christmastree#carbonfootprint#cardontrust#recycling#replanting#wildlife#ukwildlife#wildlifetrust#recyclingideas#timetotakethetreedown#takingthetreedown#endofchristmas#seeyounextchristmas#christmasisover#recycleandreuse#reducerecyclereuse#reducewaste#reducewaste♻️#reusereducerecycle#curiositybox#thecuriositybox#curiouskids#scienceforkids#learningbydoing#curiositybytes#getcurious
