The American Educational 3139 physics set is for studying pressure in liquids or gases. It has 12 teacher and student demonstrations with 10 activities, including vacuum packing and taking the suction cup challenge, for hands-on learning. The set has three experiments for demonstration purposes: Marshmallow Masher, in which students compress air in a container with marshmallows inside and observe the results; Pascal’s Pillow, which displays air pressure when students lift a book using a balloon and their lungs; and Crushing a Can, in which a can is crushed using air pressure. The 3139 contains the following items for implementing activities: clothesline rope, suction cups, yarn, conduit pipe, polyvinyl chloride (PVC ) pipe, tape, vinyl tubing, plastic box with cover, tumbler, poly bag, polystyrene foam peanuts, paper, markers, fizz keeper, electric air pump with hose, balloon, pool raft, leaf bag, ping pong balls, funnel, foam ball, beach ball, mailing tube, gloves, plastic bowl with lid, tea nut saver, pump, straws, goggles, baking soda, and instruction sheet.
