No Pressure! Teaching About Air Is A Breeze

It's human nature to take for granted what we cannot see. Nothing proves this more than the air that surrounds us! We live on the bottom of an ocean of air, and yet most people (our students, especially) never give it a second thought. But thanks to the pressure that air exerts upon us—and objects around us—amazing things happen every day! Air doesn't just take up space; it has mass and pressure. This workshop is filled with jaw-dropping discrepant events and hands-on science phenomena that will prove to your students that air is much, much more than "just" the stuff we breathe!
