Airway Adventure


Blown Away!

Experience airflow and how it's controlled by experimenting with the manipulatives, inputs, and diverters to test your hypothesis.  

Don't get blown away! In Sensation's Airway Adventure, track loose parts through the series of pneumatic tubes to see where they will end up. Try different routes using the inputs and diverters, or try different materials and see what flies at different rates.
