Today in class we made a vehicle that had to move 60 cm in a straight line. Our group is called The Hovercrafters. We decided to build a hovercraft. The hovercraft is a simple design made of a push-top bottle cap, a balloon, a blank CD and tape. This is how we made it: First, we blew up a balloon. Secondly, we hooked the bottom of the balloon where you blow it up onto the bottle cap. Then we pushed down the bottle cap and stuck it onto the CD using strong tape. It was finished in less than 10 minutes. Then we demonstrated to the class about how it works. We pulled up the bottle cap and the air began coming out of the balloon, and it glided across the table and went 60 cm. Mission accomplished!IMG_2477
