whirlwind room

Step into this custom-made, circular Whirlwind Room to feel the force of moving air in a whirlwind motion. By testing various materials, children see what happens when objects are tossed into a steam of fast moving air. This exhibit provides children the opportunity to build curiosity about STEAM topics through experimentation and play.

The Whirlwind Room exhibit is an 8’-0” diameter circular chamber with two blowers attached on opposite sides, creating a wind vortex inside. The room is fabricated with plywood framing and acrylic walls. The blowers are encased in matching plywood boxes that sit on the floor outside of the chamber. There are two portals that allow for user entry and egress.

Design drawings are available for purchase.
