Engineering: Air Dancers
Think like amusement park engineers and design a device that floats, twirls and dances in a column of air. Students engage in the engineering design process by developing and testing their prototypes in a 3-foot tall wind tube. See how small changes in design can drastically alter the aerodynamics of the ride. Continue testing design ideas from this class at our Engineering Studio in the Exhibit Halls, on level 3.
