Before the show come and MAKE YOUR OWN MARTIAN HOVERCRAFT! The air flow created by the balloon causes a cushion of moving air between the disc and the surface. This lifts the CD and reduces the friction which allows the disc to hover freely. Come and make your own! Using just a CD, a balloon, a pop top off a dishwashing bottle and a little bit of air... After the show come and MAKE YOUR OWN LUNAR LANDER! Create your own spacecraft that could return astronauts to the moon safely and keep them from landing too hard or too deep in lunar regolith! You will use simple materials to make your craft and then we will test them out on the LAUNCHPAD! Everyone will walk away with their lunar spacecraft and an astronomical feeling of pride!
