Wind Columns is a series of three wind producing columns that allows visitors to send objects flying into the air. Visitors use a variety of everyday materials such as paper, scarves, and balloons to invent their own flying contraptions. Visitors can then test their devices by placing them in the Wind Column and adjusting the speed. Workstations surroundingĀ Wind Columns allow visitors to create and then to redesign their flying devices as many times as they wish. Visitors are encouraged to test their designs and compare their results with others, creating a collaborative learning experience.
