Technology: How to Make a Pythagoras Cup

Ages: 7 - 13

Description: Named after the Greek mathematician Pythagoras, who lived 2000 years ago, Pythagoras’s cup was designed to catch greedy people who tried to take more than their fair share of wine. When filled above a certain point, the cup drains the liquid (in this case, water) through its base. It works because a liquid will always flow from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure – an effect known as a siphon.
