- This is an interesting "rant" that does raise a valid point. There is a danger that science demonstrations can be just cool with no educational value. The challenge of course is to be both interesting and educational.
It is also worth bearing in mind that the demonstration can take place away from the education, in that by offering an exciting experience the audience is invited to ask the question "how did that happen?" and then hopefully start the explore the answer themselfs.
