Nifty Pneumatics

Next week we will be looking in detail at pneumatics. We will be designing and making devices that pump air. Today we learnt about how they work, pushing and pulling the syringes and observing the effect.

The object on the right is a hovercraft. It uses the air in the ballon to stay afloat and glide across the table.

Finally we experimented with hydraulics, we filled our pneumatic system with water.
