We have put together a list of Air Pressure Science Experiments that is perfect for kids to try at home or to demonstrate their knowledge in a science fair.
These Air Pressure Science Experiments are a sure shot way of fun learning, experimenting, and exploring the fascinating forces of air pressure. These experiments can be conducted anywhere at home, playgrounds or outdoors.
Air Pressure Science Experiments
Before we step into our amazing experiments, let us learn a little about Air Pressure and its properties in words.
Air Pressure is the pressure created on the air molecules exerted by the air pressing down to the earth.
Generally, the air pressure is determined by three factors: Temperature, Moisture, and Altitude. Commonly air pressure is measured using a mercury barometer.
Here are the science activities or experiments to demonstrate Air Pressure to children.
1. Drinks Dispenser Science Activity
We usually observe that Kids are curious about dispensing liquids out of the bottles while adults do the same at parties or in the home. Why don’t we let them prepare their own drinks dispenser! Check out whether our experiment helps our kids in making drinks dispensers in no time and with fewer materials.
Click Drinks Dispenser Science Activity to get all the details before you start investigating.
2. Hot Air Cold Air Science Activity
Performing this science activity is a perfect opportunity for the kids to understand the concept of cold and hot air. In addition, they will get the chance to talk about what is actually happening with the water and air together and to explore the reason or science behind it.

6. Balloon in a Bottle: Air Pressure Experiment
This is a simple experiment that shows how Air Pressure works.
Objective: Kids learn how air and air pressure are able to expand a balloon and can have a great demonstration of air pressure.
For more details about the balloon in a bottle: air pressure Browse Balloon in a Bottle: Air Pressure Experiment
7. Balloon and Pin Experiment
Here is an interesting experiment that shows you can make an un-poppable balloon.
A sharp object is a bad friend to an inflated balloon because it lets the balloon pop upon contact! But a pack of the same sharp object becomes a great friend to the same balloon.
Are you interested in learning about what the magical science around balloons and pins? Let’s dive into the Balloon and Pin Experiment (Air Pressure Experiment for Kids)
8. How to Put a Skewer Through a Balloon: Science Fair Project
Do you think an inflated balloon pops out when you insert a skewer into it, as always? Of course, Yes!
But there is a simple trick to insert a sharp-ended skewer into the balloon without blasting it. Let’s learn about this Non-popping balloon experiment.
Though it appears easy, you may not succeed in one or two attempts.
