Scientific Explorer Tornado Maker is a science kit that will guide your child through the entire process of how a tornado forms, what can occur, how it travels and the damage it can cause by creating your own high-speed thundering liquid tornado right before your eyes. Create different tornados by combining different objects and liquids in the storm simulator and program different wind velocities to simulate the different power a tornado can release. Just fill the storm chamber with water and turn the power dial "On" to watch your liquid tornado form instantly. The Tornado Maker requires (3) "AA" alkaline batteries (not included).
