Thermoelectric Battery: Junior inventor Jaikob showcases his unique way of generating electricity from the heat of a candle!
Sapphire Clock: Losing a couple of seconds off your wristwatch every month may not be a big deal to you, but when it comes to scientific measurements keeping time is essential to accurate record keeping. That’s why Andre Luiten and Martin O’Connor from the University of Adelaide have developed a clock so accurate it only loses a single second every 30 million years!
