In many ways they were so different. When they stood next to each other, the stark contrast between their appearances was plain for all to see.
Appearances, however, can be deceiving. They were the best of friends….

Science - DO try this at home!
This week we are going to be trying out some fun science activities. Each of these will have a short demonstration video and step-by-step instructions. If you like, you can send it a photo or video of you doing the activity!
Take the piece of paper and bend it in half. Hold the paper so that the bend is at the bottom. Drop the big coin between the sides of the paper into the centre of the hole.
Grasp the paper between finger and thumb near the bend, on either side of the coin. Slide your fingers upwards around the coin. Allow the paper to buckle around the coin – you don’t want to keep it tight all the way around.
The coin should now slip through the hole! A top tip for you here though – try to use fresh sheets of paper with each experiment, as the folds you make might give them a clue…
This is definitely a challenge and to solve it your family will have to put their problem solving skills to the test. The answer isn’t obvious, so how can you help them along the way?
Firstly, work out exactly what the problem is. So set up the trick – first with the 1p and then 2p piece (or equivalent). See if they can pinpoint exactly why it won’t work.
Now that you know exactly what is stopping the coin, ask your family if there is anything that they can change?
Finally, don’t be afraid to be creative! Because we have folded the paper we can now pull these two points apart very gently and the paper will bend to allow the slit to get wider and not tear. The coin slips through, almost like it has shrunk.
Physics is all about understanding our world, and as we solve problems like our shrinking coin we find out a little something more about how our Universe works – and it can be fun too! Who doesn’t like to find out how a trick works?
This is a really nice experiment to try out first with the youngest member of your family. Once they have worked it out, you can put them in charge of the puzzle and they can challenge everyone else with the mystery of the amazing shrinking coin!
There are more dimensions than just the three you are familiar with. Time is sometimes thought of as the 4th dimension.
