Alien hovercraft from home!

I’m sure we’ve all heard fascinating stories about UFO sightings from around the world at least once in our lives.

b

However, ever wonder what the UFOs actually look like? Apart from those small blobs in the air we see in those pictures ‘confirming’ UFO sightings…

Well, whether you’ve thought of it or were too scared to (like me…), now is the time to start imagining because you will be recreating your very own flying saucer at home! These balloon-CD replicas will actually hover and glide seamlessly across your table! All you will need is:

  • A CD
  • A balloon
  • A bottlecap
  • A pin or warmed knife (please be under parental supervision when using these tools!)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Art supplies to decorate your custom hovercraft! Make it colourful, futuristic, or even use cotton balls to recreate clouds for those sneaky, sneaky aliens that try to camouflage themselves in the sky…

You can follow instructions from this video, which also briefly explains the science behind your skating saucer. Note: instead of using a knife to poke a hole in the bottlecap, you can use a pin to poke several smaller holes instead.

If you would like to make this craft into more of an experiment, you can hover your UFO across different surfaces to see which one it glides fastest on- the surface with the fastest glide will have the least friction!

Adiós,

Kasia M.
