Probability and chance are essential concepts not just within statistics, but in real life. We describe an activity which investigates what we mean by bias, how we can identify whether something such as a die is biased, and how we can use it to our advantage! The described activity has been used at science festivals for children aged five years and upwards. It can be tailored to various age groups and time periods, and uses equipment available for modest prices through non-specialist websites.
