Wind Tube Kit
Students see tangible effects of moving air in wind tube investigations!
Discover abstract physics principles like airflow, drag, and turbulence as objects tumble around in mid-air in reaction to a wind tunnel fan. They'll see how different object attributes like material, weight, and aerodynamics affect its behavior and discover the limitations of gravity. Heavy objects will sink to the bottom while light ones will fly out of the top! Open-ended kit allows students to find and choose their own objects to test, encouraging curiosity and experimentation. Wind tunnel is constructed from lightweight, durable ABS frame and clear plastic tube with a hook-and-loop fastener strap to keep it closed. A 3-speed fan provides the air force. Tunnel is 12-3/4"L x 12-3/4"W x 58"H. Fan is 11" dia. Accommodates small groups of students (4-6). Recommended for Elementary and up.
