While Benz’s auto was driven by a gasoline powered engine, today we will celebrate his invention by crafting a car of a different sort. Can you create a vehicle propelled by…air?

This was a great article written by Dr. Anne Paris. I love the ideas and tools she gives to use. I have all three of the Empathy Way books and can't wait to read them to my Grandkids so that they can become Caring Empathetic Children and later teens, which is so important, especially in this world we live in. I can't wait to see what Dr. Paris has for us next!
