Note: The TeacherGeek Wind Pump activity no longer uses 20cc syringes in its build. The yellow 14mL cylinders work in much the same way, while remaining school-friendly. There is not cutting or assembly required for the 14mL cylinder - simply attach the piston with the hardware as outlined in the Build Guide and go!
