Matt Ryan, of Brain STEM, a science education group from Tucson, came to inform and delight children from kindergarten through sixth grade. In two sessions, the children learned about the power of air and air pressure through such activities as riding a hover board, operating a “sneeze cannon” that shot water and shooting a ping pong ball from a PVC pipe.
