Lightbulb crazy straws

I am helping my daughter with a science project and need help ! We did a comparison between using one large straw....using two regular sized straws at one time....and using four coffee stirrer straws at one time. Obviously the largest straw gets to the bottom of the glass quickest, but I want to explain that it is more than just the volume of the straw. Her test subjects were me(an adult) compared to a child(my son) to see who could drink it fastest. Obviously I drank it quickest, but is it because I have a bigger lung capacity ? I feel like a dummie .......I just need to put more than one lil explanation down....and its due in 8 days. Thank you sincerely !
