Tennis Ball Launcher

Tennis Ball Launcher

Sponsored by Junior League of Daytona Beach

Put air to work with this exhibit by dropping a large sphere in a cylinder compressing the air underneath it. This air is forced into a tube that holds a tennis ball. The compressed air pushes up on the tennis ball and launches it up to the ceiling. This exhibit can open the discussion of gas laws during museum science classes and uses of cylinders in our everyday lives.

*These exhibits are still available for sponsorship.
