dFORM: Eureka!

"Give me a place to stand on and I can move the earth." -Archimedes

Archimedes(c.287-212 B.C.) was a Greek scientist, mathematician, inventor, and engineer. His accomplishments included the water-screw, by which water could be drawn from the Nile for irrigation, the mathematical text On Spirals, and various engines of war. When asked by King Hiero to discover whether a goldsmith had alloyed the gold of his crown with silver, Archimedes found the answer while taking a bath by considering the water displaced by his own body. In his excitement at the discovery, legend has it that he jumped up and ran home naked, shouting, "Eureka" (I have found it).

It is here that dFORM posts its own discoveries in hopes to instill a sense of wonder and excitement that are the heart of any scientific and educational endeavour.
