Up, up and away at St Andrews


Up, up and away! Well not in a balloon nor very high but we did use wind, sort of… As part of the year 10 science course we studied a unit on forces and decided to try our hand at making hovercrafts.

There was a lot of skepticism as to the possibility of our success but the year 10 proved themselves and lifted off and hovered down the corridor of the secondary block. They were so successful that one of them was even seen to lift Mr. Williams’ fine physique with ease. A lot of fun was had and the students hopefully learned something about forces as well!

It’s a success, the hovercraft is moving! It’s a success, the hovercraft is moving!
