Air Matters

Test the various effects of air pressure and see how air conducts electricity.

Floating ball
Play with the ball (gently!). Find out why it spends a lot of its time floating in a special place.

Spin up a storm
Spin the sphere fast or slow. Change direction suddenly. Create great swirls in your storm just like planets Earth and Jupiter.

Lightning ladder
Sparks fly as you create a 30,000 volt charge and learn a whole lot about lightning.

Touch the lightning
Yes you can touch our lightning, as we've made it quite safe. Watch how the lightning is attracted to you.
