Use the same principles of physics that power rockets to power a slightly less combustible projectile. Your students will problem-solve on the fly! All rockets work by shoving gas out of their nozzles really rapidly. This pushes the rest of the rocket in the other direction, as predicted by Newton’s Third Law.

A hovercraft is a type of vehicle that rides on air that is under pressure. Using common materials and some student ingenuity, engineer a hovercraft to glide across a tabletop on a near frictionless cushion of air. How does a flat surface move differently along another one when there’s air flowing under it?
