Are you looking for some refreshment and fun in the water? Splash away! Hurry to our Water side and experiment with water... or just splash water all over each other.
Anyone can blow a bubble, but can you crawl inside a soap bubble? You need come to our Waterside in order to find out!
Pull the rope slowly so the red bar rises from the box with soap. Between the bar and the soap a colourful film appears. What colours will your bubble be?
Use the Archimedean screw, the water wheel and the pump of cups to bring up the water. Or try to balance balls on top of a water beam and blow them to a whirlpool.
Whilst splishing and splashing you discover everything about water pressure and the law of communicating vessels. No, they aren't talking vessels, but it sure looks as though they are making an agreement, because if you connect one another, the water in them will rise to an equal height. Feel free to have a try yourself! All you need are some cups, some fossets and tubes...
Make sure not to forget our Cartesian devil! No, he's not some sea monster living in Technopolis, but a cylinder which you can make sink or float. If you understand how this little devil works, you also know how submarines can effortlessly dive and ascend.
And even better than at sea: you can make your own waves and control them! Refreshing as well as instructive!
