In these experiments students will learn the following:
• Air takes up space (pumping up a bicycle tire)
• Air acts as a brake (making and flying a parachute)
• Air carries (making and flying a kite)
• Air propels (making and blowing a pinwheel)
• Air transmits sound (making a “drum skin")

Information and ideas:
Observe the safety information in the related “What can air do? (teacher information)” teaching method, which is available on the media portal of the Siemens Stiftung, as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school and discuss them with your students.
