Test the strength of air and design devices that flutter, fly, and float in the breeze! Whip up a wind, pop out a vortex, compare breezes to gusts, and create a contraption for a blustery day. Manipulate materials in a wind column, use your breath to create a work of art, and witness wonders that wind can do!
All activities included with admission: $9/Public; Free to Members and all children ages one and younger.
