Description: Think the library is just for story time? Think again. This special event introduces kids ages 4 and up to the principles of air and pressure. Children will learn how the weight of the earth?s atmosphere pushes down on them with the force of two elephants, how Bernoulli?s principle creates enough lift to make a jumbo jet fly, and how air pressure can be used to launch a hot air balloon. Demonstrations include a vortex generator that creates giant smoke rings and a chemical reaction that shoots objects through the air. Registration is required.
