Can you move an object across the table without touching it?  Can you make a ping pong ball levitate?  Learn how to pose problems for young children to entice them to investigate air dynamics – and play with the materials yourself to solve the problems with your fellow teachers!  Air dynamics engages children and adults in inquiry about using engineering tools and systems to control the effect of air on objects.
