New science kit from Thames & Kosmos will leave you floating on air!

The principles of air pressure and air flow come alive when you build and experiment with 10 different hovercraft and air-driven models. Working hovercraft models include a basic Hovercraft, Propeller Hovercraft, Floating Ball hovercraft, Transport Hovercraft I and II, and Curling Stone.

Hovercrafts glide easily on a cushion of air across smooth floors or atop flat water. Air is invisible, but it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. How much weight can your transport hovercrafts carry?

Air-Stream Machines models are driven by a unique blower motor and a safe, soft-bladed fan. The blower motor uses an impeller to increase the air pressure under the hovercraft. The fan creates a stream of air to push the vehicle forward. Experience the power of air pressure and air flow by experimenting with propellers and impellers.

The Batting Machine, Air Basketball, Carousel and Race Car models round out this fun and engaging kit. The Batting Machine tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Practice shooting hoops using air power with the Basketball Launcher. See how far forward a stream of air propels the fan-driven car.

This awesome hands-on kit includes all the parts needed to assemble one model at a time and features full-color, illustrated, step by step instructions. The 32-page Manual also explains the science behind the machines.

Air-Stream Machines teaches key physics principles like propulsion, fan-power, air-streams, the Coanda Principle, gravity, friction and force.

Great for classrooms, science fairs, home schooling and pure at-home fun!
