Description

Physics comes alive as the Hover-Craft I levitates on a cushion of air and races across the floor. Powered by two rubber band propellers, the Hover-Craft I can be built for distance or speed and will even work on carpet. Challenge students to make their models go the farthest or the fastest. Assembly time is between one and two hours for most students.
