A Big Lift from a Little Pressure!

Early Engineers


This week we built our very own hovercraft! This take home physical engineering project blew our minds! This hands-on learning project allowed us discuss friction and air pressure.

This project included:

  • Discussing the science behind what propels certain objects
  • Demonstrating friction and air pressure with the hovercrafts we created
  • Brainstorming other motions or objects that demonstrate friction and air pressure, such as our shoes on the ground while walking, or inflating a bicycle tire.
