Go with the Flow

Go with the Flow

In this quick and easy activity and/or demonstration, learners use two empty soda cans to illustrate Bernoulli's principle. Learners lay the two cans parallel to each other on a level surface and blow between the cans to cause them to roll together. Use this activity to introduce learners to the basics of air pressure. This resource also includes information about how air pressure relates to tornados and tornado safety.
