Humans have invented clever ways to get air to do some heavy lifting! The technical term for this is pneumatics, and in this lesson, your kids will learn in a simple way how the air is used to do work, by building your own small pneumatic lift.
This STEAM program is designed to teach your kids science and apply it to solve practical engineering challenges. Your young innovators will learn how to use state-of-the-art technology and how mathematics is useful to create projects, all while embracing their creative side.
- What power do air and water have and what are they used for?
- Brainstorming: Windmills, wind turbines, hydro-electric power stations, etc.
- Can you increase the power of the air?
- Compressed air: Changing the volume of a closed system compresses air, increasing internal air pressure.
- What is a pneumatic and hydraulic mechanism?
- Pneumatics & Hydraulics: Power of air and water used in pressure machines to perform mechanical work.
