Super Diver Kit includes enough material to make thirty plain Cartesian Divers.
The Cartesian Diver is a classic science experiment that explores the properties of air. Air has weight, exerts pressure, and can be squeezed and compressed. The Cartesian Diver demonstrates all three properties using hands-on experiments.
Start with a two-liter plastic bottle filled with water. The diver will float and sink in the bottle when pressure is applied to the outside of the bottle. Cartesian Divers are also a great way to demonstrate the concept of buoyancy.
