Curtin University joins The Big Watermelon Experiment

  • -
  • Engineering Pavilion Lawn, Curtin University Bentley Campus
    Kent Street, Bentley WA 6102, Australia

Come and join us to celebrate National Science Week with one fruity (and somewhat messy) science experiment.

At this free event we will investigate how many rubber bands does it take to implode a watermelon. Predict, plan, explore the forces at work and participate in a mass collaboration in science.

Watch University teams compete to see who can implode the watermelon the fastest. Join a collaborative experiment by placing your rubber band on a watermelon...will yours cause the definitive implosion? 

This event is being held to share the joy of Experimentary's The Big Watermelon Experiment. Further information can be found at Thanks Dr Rob for the joint journey to watermelon armageddon.
