CD Hovercraft

I decided to make science themed upcycled gifts for my cousins this Christmas (we exchanged gifts over the Thanksgiving weekend since we were together) to go with their new science center membership. Today I'm sharing the first of the two gifts, a cd hovercraft.


I used an old mixed cd, covered the title with some paint, then glued a bottle cap with small holes to the center. A balloon goes over the bottle cap and its air lets the cd glide around the floor as it escapes. Ooooo, physics…
