More Siler Science: Pressure

While on a break from school, the children asked me if they could do some more science experiments (see previous science post here). Using Bathtub Science (link) by Levine and Johnstone as a guide, we did three experiments to demonstrate how pressure affects water and air in different ways:
  1. Cartesian Diver (Wikipedia)
  2. Air Pressure Sprayer
  3. Water Balloon Cannon

Part 1: Cartesian Diver

Part 2: Air Pressure Sprayer

Part 3: Water Balloon Cannon
