Check out the experiment at http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiment/cd-hovercraft-sick-scien… We used to think that building our own hovercraft was going to take a couple of trips to NASA. We quickly realized that it was a little iffy having jet engines and ultra-lightweight material anywhere near Steve. We had to develop our own design using everyday materials, and that's exactly what we did. Using a CD, a balloon, and a few other household items you can create a working hovercraft, too!
