Air

Pump up your neurons!

With the weight of an elephant on the body or experiencing the sensation of being on the Moon, the air is full of surprises! Before their bewildered eyes, young minds get to see a marshmallow puff up to twice its normal size using our evacuate bell jar. Then during five hair-raising experiments (floating balls, Bernoulli balloon contests, soap-bubble geometry shapes, swim bladder and buoyancy), your young scientists will discover the secrets of this mysterious substance, its composition, force, how it is used for planes and even fish! It will blow you away!

For 30 more minutes:

Let’s take you to the Moon with the vacuum chamber, where no sound can be heard from our alarm clock inside!
