In this demonstration, learners observe the effects of air pressure. They will watch as marshmallows inside a bottle expand as a vacuum pump removes air from the bottle.
In this activity, learners observe what would happen to their bodies if they went to outer space without a space suit.
Feeling PressuredAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners (at least three) work together to explore the effects of atmospheric pressure.
Falling FeatherAdd to list Details
In this physics activity, learners recreate Galileo's famous experiment, in which he dropped a heavy weight and a light weight from the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to show that both weights fall
Engineer an Octopus Suction Pad
In this engineering design challenge, learners build an octopus-inspired suction pad that can grab an object and hold it tightly in the air.
In the Toilet
This activity explores the basic workings of a siphon, which is the core technology that makes toilets work.
Ping Pong Ball Shooter
In this activity, learners use ABS pipe and an air leaf blower to make a strong shooting machine.
"Boyle-ing" WaterAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore Boyle's Law and discover that water will boil at room temperature if its pressure is lowered.
Air Pressure and Dent PullersAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners simulate Otto von Guericke's famous Magdeburg Hemispheres experiment.
Keep it Cool
In this activity, learners explore how engineers have met the challenge of keeping foods, liquids, and other items cool.
