During today’s class we continued the Marvel Science Olympics with the topic of Air Pressure.
Today’s competition was the inflation of a giant balloon. By directing the air that is everywhere around us we were able to inflate the balloons in one breath. This is something that only Superman can usually do except this time our scientists found themselves as powerful as he is!
Another experiment that we observed taught us how low and high pressure will always balance out. Using colored water, a couple of glass containers and a lit candle, we observed how the water was pushed from being outside of a flask into the inside as if the water was sucked in by some super power.
