Hovermagic with the Department of Engineering

Saturday 16 March: 10:00am - 4:00pm

Department of Engineering, LR4, Trumpington Street, CB2 1PZ

What makes a hovercraft toy car go? What makes it go straight? What makes it go faster? Does adding a skirt or fins improve the movement? Join Cambridge Engineers and design, make, test and modify battery powered toy hovercraft and explore the science that makes them work.

This event is just one of many activities that make up our Community Open Day at the Department of Engineering. Search the Science Festival website or check out information posters on the day to find out what else is going on.
