Physics: Force and Pressure
by Thames & Kosmos
Balloons hold capabilities well beyond just containing hot air. Turns out, they are really good for air pressure and force demonstrations and experiments! Learn about these principles through the fun and lively experiments in this kit! Find out about how air is much more than just emptiness, that it actually has volume and takes up space. Try blowing up a balloon in a bottle, make a simple water fountain to learn about air pressure, race a jet-propelled balloon rocket to investigate forces, lift a pile of books with your breath, and much more! Educational, hands-on science learning!
Nine experiments with an 8-page manual. For ages 8 and up.
