Wind Columns is a series of three wind producing columns that allow visitors to send an array of lightweight 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 column and adjusting the speed. Workstations surrounding Wind Columns allow visitors to create and 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.
