HoverCrafts provides a gateway to the engineering process through hands-on planning, construction, testing, and iteration. Visitors are encouraged to tinker and adjust their creations to achieve individual design goals. How high will your craft hover, float, or fly?
HoverCrafts is located on the first floor of the museum and includes a rotating selection of WonderLab-provided building materials. Suitable for most ages, visitors’ creations can be launched up the wind tunnel with just the push of a button.
HoverCrafts is funded by National Science Foundation grants to the Experimental Nuclear Physics group at Indiana University, and built by staff at the IU Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter and the IU Department of Physics.
