Create cool patterns with sand, water, and gravity when you put together the Discovery 3D Motion Sandscape. Just follow the instructions to fill the Sandscape with sand and soapy water, and then every time you rotate the Sandscape display in the base, gravity kicks in, pulling the sand down into the water and creating swirling patterns. These are called turbulent eddies, a phenomena that occurs in fluid flow. A large color poster provides more information about sand, water, and eddies.
This is an easy science activity for kids to set up, and it's going to look really cool kept out on display. Kids will like rotating the Sandscape over and over to create different swirling patterns each time. It's a nice hands-on introduction to some science concepts.
The Discovery 3D Motion Sandscape is for ages 8 and up. It's a fun activity for science-minded kids that results in a mesmerizing desktop display.
The kit comes with a Sandscape tank and plug, a funnel, a Sandscape stand, and four bags of sand. You'll also need water, a cup, dish soap, a mixing stick, and tape.
It took us between 15 and 20 minutes to get ours set up, and the instructions were easy to follow.
