Did you know that every second of every day you have an elephant's-worth of weight on your shoulders? You don’t notice it, but it’s always there, and it’s caused by…air! The air around us is always pushing on us, with almost 15 pounds on every square inch of our body. We are literally being Crushed by Air! Come see the science behind this natural and everyday phenomenon. This assembly includes the Air-Zooka, cans crushed by air, human-size shrink wrap, and more. For grades 4 and up.
