We look at airflow this week on #STEAMwork science exploration. Teach your young learners about lift, gravity, density, thrust, and more with an at home version of our Bernoulli’s Hoops exhibit! Bring a bit of Museum magic to your home and see what you can make fly.
what is a force?
A force is a push or pull that causes an object to change its speed, direction or shape. Learn more about the four forces of flight: gravity, lift, thrust and drag.
want to experiment more?
Do you have balloons on hand and want to try a different experiment that demonstrates Bernoulli’s principle? Try this from Scientific American.
