Tornado Tubes

Tornado Tubes

  • Simple, yet clever 1″ dia. by 3″ long plastic device to demonstrate the vortex effect of a tornado. Partially fill with water one of the two half-gallon size plastic soda bottles which you supply. Screw the bottles into opposite ends of the tube which we supply.
  • Tip so the full bottle is on top and give it a circular starting whirl. Presto! You have a vortex. Call it a tornado if you’re a meteorologist, a Charybdis if you’re a classicist, or a whirlpool if you’re into oceanography.
  • Lots of fun and a fine opportunity to attempt to explain the effects of the earth’s rotation on water draining out of a bathtub. The phenomena are related we’re told, but good luck!!

Two 2-liter bottles plus one tornado tube = one tornado! Reuse plastic bottles to create a mesmerizing tornado! Kids gather around to see the whirling action. Tornado Tubes A great hands-on tool for demonstration of vortex action Worthwhile addition to a “weather” unit Fits standard soda bottles Add glitter or food coloring for impressive tornado action Sturdy and durable science toy Comes with complete instructions Ages 5+ Note: Color will be selected randomly at the time of s

    I was looking for one of these “tornado”tubes for my son who is autistic. There was a “tornado” in his class at school, that he just loves to play with, so we wanted one for home. It really captures his attention, and he will play with it for a long period of time. I recieved it within just a few days of placing my order.

    I bought this for my son’s Science Project on Tornados. It worked like a charm in creating a “tornado” in a bottle. No leakage and was easy to assemble! Makes a pretty cool visual for kids!

    I bought this for my nephew for his birthday. He is very fascinated with tornados so he loved this thing. I got 2 of them so that when he comes to visit he has 1 here. I read on another site to put sparkles and little houses ffrom monopoly in there or small farm animals he did that when he got home that night. Very fun toy for a child interested in tornados.

    Our tornado loving son loves this. We used 1 liter bottles. Great funnel action, our son plays with it over and over.
