Use the Air Stream Machines kit to build a series of air-driven, moving models using a unique blower motor with a safe, soft-bladed fan.
Build a working hovercraft that glides across smooth floors or flat water on a cushion of air and investigate how this and other machines rely on air and air pressure to function.
Construct a batting machine that tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Assemble a basketball launcher and practice shooting hoops with air power. Make a fan-driven car that drives forward, propelled by a stream of air. Experiment to see how much weight your hovercraft can support.
Learn how even though air is invisible, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. Experiment with propellers and impellers to learn about air pressure and air flow.
