Tornado Demonstration Model

Capture the power of a tornado with the new Teaching Tornado. Students will be amazed with this tornado simulator and 20 page Teacher's Guide packed with 7 detailed experiments. This device will explain and demonstrate how tornados form, and what weather conditions are necessary and how other forces influence their movement.  Students will learn about how a strong updraft is important, about convergence and rotation, funnel speed and how it is related to funnel width, and many more exciting tornado facts! 

The Teaching Tornado uses a safe, cool mist to create the tornado effect.  It's so safe that students can reach into the unit to get a true hands-on understanding of how fragile a tornado can be.  Support posts have holes drilled into them - by adjusting the angle of the poles, different tornado phenomena can be shown.
