• All About Air

    Amaze your friends with this collection of cool science experiments powered by the air you breathe. Let's create a life-size tornado at home or classroom after learning how to capture a swirling vortex in a bottle! We will also learn how weather systems develop and how air in the atmosphere moves through convection currents, uncover the secret to inflating an 8-inch bag using a single breath of air, and try to launch a piece of potato using compressed air. Fire up your engineering brain to turn an ordinary leaf blower into a machine that makes toilet paper fly. This is an action-packed programme that’s guaranteed to get your creative ideas flowing.
