Play and experiment to learn how wind effects different objects. Then use the materials to create a game you can teach to someone else.
Float and Fly
Create an object using simple materials, then put it to the test and see if it flies. Once you’ve conquered the air, adapt your design and make it float.
Design a sail using Tinkertoys and fabric, then send it flying down the racetrack. Can you modify your sail to beat the best time of the day?
Assemble the magnetic pipes to get a ball from start to finish on one side of the ball run. Work as a team to try to get the ball around all four sides of the cube.
