Discover the amazing power of air! Build a balloon-powered air hockey game where the puck whizzes and whooshes along a cushion of air. Use a set of number stencils and an air pump to make spray-art scoreboards for your game. Then learn all about how engineers harness air to do work — from moving, to inflating, to putting pressure on things!
