Air Blast Cannon Maker Lab
Ready, aim, blast! Using the fun and clear instruction book, construct a moveable, air-powered cannon and fire away at the included targets. Makers will explore the physics of projectiles, the mechanics of pneumatics, and how they work in everyday machines -- like bicycle pumps!
- Promotes S.T.E.M.
- Construct an air powered movable cannon
- Test your aim on the included paper targets
- Learn about physics and the power of air pressure
- Clear instructions take the intimidation factor out of being a maker
- Larger box format 10
Comes With: Chipboard parts, plastic fasteners, 5 plastic clips, 3 clear plastic syringes, punch out paper targets, PVC tubing in 3 colors, 3 foam darts. 33 pieces. 9 3/4" x 11 3/4"
While these maker kits will not teach you how to weld or use a CNC machine, you will make some cool stuff and learn about basic wiring, electronics, gravity feed systems, and pneumatic power. Once again Klutz comes through with fun kits that teach real world skills. Projects are exciting, instructions are large-format and clearly written, and almost everything you need is in the box. The Wired Remote Race Car kit helps us build a chipboard craft car that moves in four directions, teaching about wiring and switches. Circuit Games takes electronics a step farther; builders will use LEDs and buzzers to construct a quiz show board used to play 5 separate games. The Gumball Machine dispenses real gumballs (not included) down customizable ramps, bumpers and guides. The Air Blast Cannon is a portable, workable air-powered cannon that fires missiles at targets. Maybe after these you will be ready to tackle that CNC machine!
