BANNERS: International BATH Day! | June 14

So when was the last time you had a bath? There are so many positives to having a bath versus a shower:

  • More relaxing
  • You're able to read
  • More soothing for those body aches
  • Peaceful
  • You're actually cleaner - we could go on and on...

But usually one has no time. Well, today is the day and a reason to have that bath! International Bath Day is also a time to learn and discover.

It's time for little scientists to learn and discover things using bath toys or simple objects.

Legend has it that the Greek mathematician, scientist and scholar, Archimedes, made a great discovery on this day. While taking a bath, he saw that an object’s volume could be accurately measured by being submerged in water. Unable to contain his excitement, he jumped out of the bathtub, and ran through the streets of Syracuse, Greece while shouting, “Eureka! Eureka!”

Archimedes’ exact date of birth is not known, only the year (287BC) so the day chosen to commemorate is the day that he leapt out of the bath tub, June 14th.

Happy International Bath Day!
