Up! Build a Pneumatic Lift

Humans have invented clever ways to get air to do some heavy lifting! The technical term for this is pneumatics, and in this lesson you will learn in a simple way how the air is used to do work, by building your own small pneumatic lift.


Class Content

What power does air and water have and what are they used for?
> Brainstorming: Windmills, wind turbines, hydro-electric power stations, etc.
Can you increase the power of air?
> Compressed air: Changing the volume of a closed system compresses air, increasing internal air pressure.
What is a pneumatic and hydraulic mechanism?
> Pneumatics & Hydraulics: Power of air and water used in pressure machines to perform mechanical work.
