Product Description:

This neat experiment kit involves the use of compressed air and water. Before each experiment is conducted, the user must first construct one of the 6 model designs using the 47 interlocking plastic construction pieces. Each model includes step-by-step, illustrated building instructions in the user’s manual. Some experiments involve only air while others involve both air and water. To build up pressure in the tank, the user must pump the manual compression pump as directed for each experiment. The models feature land or water pressure-powered vehicles. This a great way for children and young teens to experiment with the laws of physics, using some trial-and-error strategies. After each model has been tested at least once, the manual encourages the user to adjust the outcome of the experiment by changing the water level, moving the nozzle, etc. ~ Brianna

Publisher Description:

Harness the power of air and water to make things move! Build water-rocket cars, jet-propelled boats, a water gun, and even a lawn sprinkler. Learn about the laws of physics and their applications in real-world engineering. When you pump air into your rocket, you increase the air pressure inside. Then when you release the clamp, watch out — the air and water mixture inside will shoot out, causing your rocket to zoom off in the opposite direction! Many machines, from the oldest pipe organs to modern day rocket ships use the same technologies that power your water rockets. Experiment to test some of the differences between water and air, and learn why your rocket needs both to go fast.

  • Build six different air-and-water powered models
  • Learn about the physics of action-reaction forces, rocket propulsion, nature’s rockets, compressed air, and pneumatics
  • Make a big splash into physics with these fun, wet, and wild models
