dc.description.abstractThis article presents an activity to demonstrate sampling, with a focus on exploring issues that arise due to biased sampling. The statistical concept of sampling is often given little direct attention, typically reduced to the mantra “take a random sample”. The activity described has two stages of investigation that can be tailored and expanded as necessary for the target age-group and available time. It is a low resource activity using readily accessible equipment. The activity has been successfully used at science festivals for ages 8 and up.
