What you get
Discover the amazing power of air! Build a balloon-powered air hockey game where the puck whizzes and whooshes along a cushion of air. Use a set of number stencils and an air pump to make spray-art scoreboards for your game. Then learn all about how engineers harness air to do work — from moving, to inflating, to putting pressure on things!
A 3 feet (L) x 2 feet (W) rectangular table or larger is recommended for this project.
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“I wanted to create an air-hockey game that you could play just about anywhere. But I couldn’t fit an air-hockey table in a box! I put air in the puck instead of the table, so you can play anywhere you are! Mason, Kiwi Crate product designer”
