The collection contains advice on running an event and also a set of videos showing simple demonstrations.

[b]General advice[/b]
An introduction to running physics-related events for public audiences, including:
* What's it all about?
* Tips and skills
* Finding funds
* Suggestions for follow up

[b]Publicity guide[/b]
How to maximise the publicity of your event, including:

Alka-Seltzer Rocket

Produced by the Institute of Physics, this Physics to Go video shows a demonstration of how the idea of pressure can be shown using just a 35mm film canister, some water and an effervescent tablet. When water is added to the effervescent tablet, bubbles of carbon dioxide gas are given off. When the lid is fitted...

Amazing Marshmallows

Produced by the Institute of Physics, this video shows a simple demonstration to stimulate discussion on gas pressures and gas laws. A vacuum wine saver pump and stopper are used to reduce the air pressure in a bottle,causing the air inside marshmallows in the bottle to expand and the sweets to swell. The...

Balloon Kebabs

Produced by the Institute of Physics, this Physics to Go video shows a short demonstration which aims to develop an understanding of surface properties. A balloon is formed by inserting air into a flexible thin rubber sheet. Most of the balloon is stretched evenly, but there are two points where the rubber is...
