Hey everyone.

Your ideas and materials list are due for the Relay for Life set design.  I hopefully will be passing them on to Ms. Weetman next week so we can schedule construction.

While we wait,  I mentioned in class that we could build an actual 1-person hovercraft that we could run up and down the hallway.

In order to do this, we need you to: 

Bring in a Plywood Sheet, 3ft or 4ft square, 3/8in or 1/2in thick. (one per group)
Borrow an electric leaf blower (one per group) for a couple weeks.

I would like to start this next week, so lets see what we can do.

For this week, I will be out on Thursday to attend the TSA Conference at UGA in Athens.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to get some practice in and build a tabletop hovercraft using materials that will be provided.

You must finish during your class period and have tape your craft with your phone. You should have your craft disassembled by the end of class so the next class may re use the computer fans.
Here are some examples of what you can do:

Build your own, tape it...... include your photo and description on your portfolio site ( I will be checking)
