    Science Shack — How High Can You Jump?

    If you are not natural high jumpers, how high can you jump? Welcome to Science Shack. We'll try and answer the question: how high can a person jump? And by the end of the program, we hope that with a little bit of applied science and technology, we'll be able to make an attempt on the world high jump record.

    Science Shack — How Tall Is It to Make a Buliding?

    How tall is it possible to make a building ever built out of paper? A group of creative young men start their experiment. Expert Shen Tui works for a major architectural engineering company and he reckons paper can be surprisingly strong if you get the design just right. When they're finished they're going to haul the host Adam up to the top in a home-made lift.

    Science Shack — Is It Possible to Walk on Water?

    When the Bazilis lizard is trying to escape from a predator, it can run right on top of the water's surface. Today on Science Shack we're going to try for a little miracle, is it possible for humans to walk on water like the lizards?

    Science Shack — Walk on the Ceiling

    Today the question of Science Shack is, can humans walk upside down the ceiling? It seems quite common that flies can walk upside down the ceiling, how about humans? Have you ever thought about this question? In today's program, the Science Shack team has come to a scientific exploration center because this building has vast space required by this experiment. Let's go and find out what's going on in the walking-on-ceiling experiment.

    Science Shack — Lightning

    Do you know that every year in this country something like 50 people are struck by lightning, which means that you have a better chance of being struck by lightning, than winning the lottery. Luckily there are ways of protecting yourself. If you put your faith in science and technology, can you tame the awesome and deadly power of lightning? Could I survive a lightning strike?

    Science Shack — Plane Made out of Paper

    This week the question is, what's the biggest thing that could fly? So I brought the shack to Cardington in Bedfordshire to this amazing hanger, which was constructed in order to build the R101 airship, the biggest aircraft ever built in Britain. Now there are only two rules, first of all their aircraft has to be big enough to carry a person, me, secondly it has to be made out of paper.

    Science Shack — The Millennium Bridge

    The Millennium Bridge is a stunning aluminium and steel structure, a bit of great design and engineering that had thousands of people queuing to walk across it on opening day, 10th June 2000. But as soon as the crowds hit the bridge there was a problem it wobbled, and not just a bit, but enough to make people cling to the handrails for security. The question we want to answer this week is why the millennium bridge wobbled?

    Science Shack — Can You Make Yourself Invisible?

    Welcome to Science Shack, today's question is: can you make yourself invisible? Just like I am now, you can tell where I am, only from my effect on the trees as I go past. And before we start I promise you there will be no camera trickery, or special effects like this, I want to be really invisible. Can you really make yourself invisible? I wish I could right now.

    Science Shack — Could You Live Under Water?

    I've often wondered whether I could be genuinely self-sufficient. It shouldn't be too difficult as long as I had enough land, but could I be self-sufficient in absolutely everything, even the air that I breathe? And that’s today's big question: could you live under water? I confess we use television trickery to pretend that I was in a giant underwater bubble, but by the end of this program I hope to be living at the bottom of this tank in an underwater version of the Shack.

    Science Shack — Flying Like A Bird

    Is there a scientific reason why no one has ever managed to fly by flapping wings like a bird, or would it be possible with modern materials to make a passenger carrying, flapping flying machine? Welcome to Science Shack. And by the end of the program I want to be flying all round this hanger using flapping wings, just like this little chap.
