Learn How Tornados Work
The Tornado Maker kit includes a fun fact manual that explains the various types of tornados and different structures, how tornadoes dissipate, how to forecast tornadoes, tornado safety and more. Create different tornados by combining different objects and liquids in the storm simulator and program different wind velocities to simulate the different power a tornado can release. Educate your child about these unique, but devastating storms, while they are spending hours of fun learning about and simulating these storms within a controlled environment.
Fun Education Experience
This is Slinky Science experiment number 146 of a series of science kits that combine the elements of learning and fun to provide hours of educational entertainment. This Tornado Maker is an exciting way for children to learn about these ferocious storms. It simulates the power and fury of a tornado along with literature on how tornados form. Exploratory learning has been proven to improve retention and helps kids focus with a hands-on learning experience.
Product’s Bells and Whistles
The “Control Center” is a knob at the base of the Tornado Maker that can change your tornado from a mild EF1 to a devastating EF5. A viewing window through the storm cloud on top of the simulator provides a unique bird’s eye view into the eye of the storm. Sound effects can be activated to provide thunderous rumbles and crackling storm clouds at the touch of a button.
What's In The Box?
This science kit includes a tornado maker, storm cloud lid, (3) foam models (tractor, pig and cow) and a 29-page fun and facts manual.
Engineer your own massive tornado in Tornado Maker! First, pick the state in which your tornado will occur (note that F5 tornadoes can only occur in tornado alley, so make sure you pick such a state). Then, read the instructions to learn what word you will have type. Then, type that word as many times as you can in 30 seconds. The more you type, the faster you get the air masses spinning, and the stronger your tornado can be!
