Abstract

Recent research into applications of the Leidenfrost effect have sparked renewed interest for this phenomenon. We report here on some of these developments, and on their deployment in an undergraduate teaching project that culminated in the production of a viral internet video. We analyse the key ingredients to the project's apparent success, both in terms of physics
pedagogy and outreach/public engagement.
