Live Demonstration Hour: Recap and Videos

(Recap written by Kenzie Moore, COSI membership processing associate and ASTC 2012 communications volunteer)

This year’s annual Demonstration Hour featured beds of nails, smashed cinder blocks, hydrogen bombs, a diablo, a bouncing championship competition, and hovercrafts…not to mention some very enthusiastic, very intelligent, and very tie-dyed presenters. One of the busiest sessions of the day, which just goes to show that you should really never underestimate the power of a well-designed, well-presented demonstration. (Really, who doesn’t wish they had the ability to build themselves a hovercraft?)
