You won’t want to miss this fun, interactive and educational exhibit coming from the Sciencenter in Ithaca, New York!
How do we move things on land, sea and air? Float on a Hovercraft chair! Move your boat through an authentic canal lock system. Send colored balls zooming through air tubes! Feel the friction! Lift weights with pulleys, levers, pneumatics and hydraulics! Discover the laws of gravity and motion!
From the Sciencenter, learn the following in this unique exhibit:
- Gravity and motion affect transportation.
- Friction affects bodies in motion: more friction results in slower motion; less friction results in faster motion.
- Air pressure can move heavy objects, such as a Hovercraft.
- Hot air rises and makes a hot air balloon go up.
- A canal lock system can raise and lower boats.
- Changing the position of a rudder, sail or wing will make a boat or airplane change direction.
- Changing air flow affects the movement of wings.
- Pulleys, levers, pneumatics and hydraulics can lift heavy loads.
- Magnetic forces allow trains to float in the air.
