The word pneumatics comes from the Greek word pneuma which means wind. Pneumatics uses trapped air to move things. Our challenge was to make a moving monster using pneumatics. We used syringes and plastic tubes to make the monster’s mouth go up and down. We made all different kinds of monsters, some were red, some were yellow, some were weird and some were cool. Here is a picture of us with our monsters. By Adam Bandyk and Frank Doran.
