Wind can be light enough to not be felt or strong enough to topple houses, and people have found ways to use this amazing force! In this new part of the “Engineering Series,” students will learn how to make different forms of air-powered objects! Whether it is a crane or a bottle car, students will learn to harness this incredible force. Students are required to wear masks for the entire program. Advanced registration required. Ages 8-12.
