Physics Fails

Avi Shalav Dr Avi Shalav, from the University of New South Wales, has developed Shalav Shack Physics Fails. This short video series, filmed and edited during the 2020 pandemic, shows the hilarious trials and tribulations of conducting live physics demonstrations from the isolated “safety” of one’s own home.
