Anyone interested in setting up a fascinating school experiment with water and tubes, showing that gravity can indeed cause water to flow up. The apparatus consists of nylon tubing used in the pub trade for lifting ales etc from the cellar to the pump, and freely available from any decent landlord. 2 bottles, preferably demijohns, a tray to catch displaced water, some pre boiled water that has cooled, some food colouring a length of string and a few grams of salt or sugar.

I would be delighted to assist and have demonstrated the experiment many times in schools and universities[?]

My Intentions:
Trying to get the experiments into the National Curriculum.

Andrew's experiment is very interesting, however the conclusions he draws from it applying to living systems do not accord with current scientific thinking. You may wish to read the thread discussing his experiments on the site at:
