A real, working hovercraft is just one of the 10 models you can build in this kit that teaches about pressure and airflow. Learn how even though air is invisible, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. Experiment with propellers and impellers, and build a hovercraft that will glide over smooth floors or flat water.
The kit includes a unique blower motor that uses an impeller to increase the air pressure under the hovercraft. And a safe, soft-bladed fan creates a stream of air to push the vehicle forward. Using these components, you can build and investigate the hovercraft and other machines that rely on air and air pressure to function.
In other experiments, you’ll construct a batting machine that tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Assemble a basketball launcher and practice shooting hoops with air power. Make a fan-driven car that drives forward, propelled by a stream of air. Experiment to see how much weight your hovercraft can support.
For ages 10 and up. Full-color, 32-page experiment manual. 59 building pieces; 10 experiments.
