Evolution and the biophysics of coconuts
This activity combines physics, biology and maths, and makes a great school STEM club or science club activity.

In this experiment students investigating the physics of floating and falling coconuts, using the coconut kernel. This makes an excellent idea for looking at evolution and adaptation in an unusual context.
