In this video, Paul attempts to push a sharpened pencil through a freezer bag, or Ziploc, full of water. He also uses this simple science experiment to help demonstrate different English tenses to his students.
Watch, and find out if he manages to push the pencil all the way through the polythene bag without springing a leak! Things could get rather wet....

If you'd like to try this at home, all you need is a sharpened pencil, a freezer bag and water.....Oh! And your mother's permission!

This was originally used to get the students talking in one of our Junior High School classes (Paul will do almost anthing to get his students to talk!)

In this video Paul tears down, or takes apart, a barcode reader (also known as a barcode scanner.)

He also explains a little of the history of the barcode, and how the barcode reader works by identifying the four main components inside, which are;

a light source
a lens
an image capture device (CCD)
a decoder

This formed a topic for some of our Junior High School classes. The students were invited to take a screw-driver and dismantle the barcode reader, while Paul pointed out, questioned and explained, items of interest. (Paul will do anything to get his students talking!)
