Experiment #4

78% of what we breath is nitrogen. But when you cool it off to -320°, things get very interesting!

Experiment At Home #1

 This simple experiment demonstrates how the differences in temperature cause air to expand and contract in real time!

Experiment At Home #2

This experiment explores the water cycle by creating a cloud in a bottle. Watch closely as the vapor rises off the hot water and creates a cloud!

Experiment At Home #3

Water and air are both types of fluids, so you can study the movement in water to understand the movements of air. This experiment helps you visualize the interactions between cold, dense water, and the warmer water than surrounds it.

Experiment At Home #4

At sea level, air weighs 14.696 pounds per square inch…which means there is over 2,116 pounds or weight on every square foot of our planet. The weight of the air is called air pressure, and this experiment shows you that what happens when the pressure drops in one area affects other areas as well!
