In Search of Solutions

This collection of practical problem-solving activities, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, arose from from an initial idea of 'egg-racing' which required solutions based on the principles of physics and engineering. The first egg race challenge was set in the mid-1970s and involved calculating how to move an...
