Welcome to the world of hovercrafts, where air becomes fuel and where a small push forward can send you soaring.
Testing the limits of science… defying the laws of gravity… it’s all in a day’s work for the average hovercraft scientist. Welcome to the world of hovercrafts: where air becomes fuel, and where a small push forward can send you soaring. We’ll study how objects in motion ricochet and move (by applying Newton’s Laws of Motion and Bernoulli’s Principle to pressure and lift) — then you’ll design and build an armada of hovercrafts that can fly, float, and zoom over anything in their path. You’ll construct tabletop-skimming models — to truly understand the mechanics of flight — before graduating to gigantic hovercrafts so big you can ride on them. We’ll have you so pumped, you’ll be floating on air!
Test the laws of physics on pressure + lift
Study the impact of friction on an object’s motion
Design + construct handheld hovercrafts that you can race against your classmates
Construct + ride a large hovercraft as you engage in relays, obstacle courses and games
