Pumping it Up with Pneumatics Set
Analyze the power and force of pressurized air and learn how to make objects move by displacing it!
Students design and build their own gadgets that utilize pneumatic principles, learning how pneumatic systems use compressed air to create force. Students use valves and syringes to create their own systems to control the flow of air through tubing, converting it into energy. The devices students create convert that energy into force and motion. Teacher’s guide provides examples, including a car jack showing how force can lift a toy car. Kit has 99 pieces, see full contents list below. Recommended for Middle School and up.
