Experiment set PRIMARY SCHOOL 6 (Water and Air)



Every child is familiar with water, but water is full of secrets. This experiment set offers an exciting way to discover some of them. How can you make a plasticine ball float? How does the water cycle work and how does water arrive in our homes? Why do water droplets have such a strange shape? These are just a few of the questions to which your young researchers can have fun finding out the answers.


Air is a fascinating material. It can’t be seen, yet it is all around us. This equipment has plenty of exciting experiments to make that tangible. Air can be felt and even heard. When it moves, it can drive things along or hold them back. In a further set of experiments, children can learn how air can lift weights and protect us from cold or from impacts. To finish with, you can impress them with the effects of air pressure.

Keep your work places dry

By screwing a stand rod into the base of the storage case, it can be transformed into a waterproof trough 11 cm high. That means that even in the fountain experiment only the inside of the case gets wet. It can then be simply emptied afterwards and dried with paper towels.
