On Saturday, October 19, in the Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Brussels children wrote a chemical laboratory. Came pupils from 8 to 17 years old.
The assignment contained 15 questions that needed to be answered in half an hour. Among them were quite complex ones, for example, what will happen if iodine is dripped on a potato or how much sugar can be dissolved in a glass of warm water.
Despite this, all participants, even the smallest ones, successfully coped with the laboratory and received certificates for memory. And the two lucky ones who scored the most points were awarded with the books by mathematician Joseph Mazur “Fluke: The Math and Myth of Coincidence”, in which he opens up the extraordinary world of the probability theory, describing complex mathematical concepts in a simple, fun language.
