Grow Chicken Egg

Grow Chicken Egg
Great choc-free Easter gift! Submerge this colourful egg in water and watch as your chick emerges from the shell, and starts to grow...

Hold nature's fury in the palm of your hand. With a twist of your wrist recreate one of the most dangerous and destructive forces on earth, a tornado. The mini vortex forms from spinning white, foam-clouds in a transparent liquid sky, and then fades just like a real tornado. A fun attention-grabber for your weather science unit, or display a few Pet Tornados at your school science evening and watch the crowd gather round! It includes a sticker with interesting tornado facts on the back.

Ages:  7 +

Pet Tornado Tube measuring 11.5 X 4.5cm

How does it work?

Tornados are formed when both high pressure and low pressure air interact. A tornado happens in the same way a whirlpool in your sink or bath tub happens. A low internal pressure draws in high pressure air to form the vortex and eventually the tornado. Tornados are normally formed when a thunderstorm occurs. The most common type of thunderstorm for forming tornados is the supercell because this type of storm already has rotation occurring within it. Turning your pet tornado in a circular motion mimics the spinning earth and causes the liquid inside to swirl and rotate (just like the air in a supercell storm) creating your very own mini tornado vortex. Who has the best wrist action and can create the longest lasting tornado?

Tornado Info:

A tornado is a violent, dangerous, rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cloud. Most tornados have wind speeds of about 177km/h, are approximately 80m across and travel several kilometers before dissipating. Although in extreme cases, tornados can attain wind speeds of more than 480km/h and stretch more than 3km across.
