The principle behind Rubbish Science is using rubbish as a resource to create something useful. Then using scientific thinking to improve the outcomes. The materials are discarded bottles and bags, So are mostly free and easy to source. The experiments are outwardly simple – anyone can set them up and achieve successful results. But most have complex outcomes...
