Design and build your very own flying creation to test in the Wind Tubes. See your creation take flight and soar to the ceiling, and defy gravity by hovering high overhead… or just fall to the floor. It’s all about air and invention, with a little bit of mid-air mayhem.
Wind Tubes is a hands-on exhibition that challenges you to make a flying creation out of everyday materials and launch it into large, clear vertical tubes of moving air. It’s a playful way to explore the effect that moving air has on objects. The challenge is to harness the power of the moving air and discover the design that will keep your creation air-born for the longest time. There’s ample opportunity to experiment and modify your design, and possibly set the record for the longest flight time. Can your design overcome turbulence, drag, air resistance and gravity?
A variety of materials from paper cups to polystyrene balls, streamers, and pipe cleaners provided. Wind Tubes is a fun, interactive exhibition for the whole family.
There are 4 sessions daily at 9.30 am, 11.30 am. 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm.
