your imagination take flight
Imagine a world away from your school desk, where
ordinary 20th century vehicles like cars and motorcycles
seem like the distant past … where you go to
class, roll up your sleeves and use 21st century technology
to build an amphibious vehicle that will let you fly
above the Earth … where
you no longer have to search the Internet for information
about hovercraft because everything you've ever wanted
to know is right there in your hands.
It doesn't have to be imaginary: DiscoverHover can
make it real!
As a class or group project, building a hovercraft
through the DiscoverHover program puts you in a position
to follow the footsteps of great air cushion inventors
like Sir Christopher
Cockerell of Great Britain and Dr. William Bertelsen
of the US. You can build a real flying machine and
race it in the real world -- alongside real world champions!
To join DiscoverHover and build a racing hovercraft
as a club or school project, have your instructor,
Scout leader or the head of any youth organization
you belong to come to our website and register for
the program. Or, if you're a student, you can
now for DiscoverHover's free hovercraft plans and
build a hovercraft on your own. Building a hovercraft
is a great middle or high school science fair project.
If you're a college or university student, DiscoverHover
makes an excellent engineering, technology, electronics
or physics project.
Anyone can join DiscoverHover, but the hovercraft
plans are free only to students, instructors and youth
To have your DiscoverHover project featured on our
web site or in HoverWorld Insider, the World
Hovercraft Organization's newsletter, just email PR@WorldHovercraft.org.
