Melville Intermediate - Fonterra Science Roadshow

Yesterday Melville Intermediate were lucky enough to host the Fonterra Science Roadshow.  This was a wonderful event for the students who attended, and we had Josh from Room Five present with a camera to record some of the events and the amazing activities and experiements that the students were involved in.  One of the activities was the students chance to ride a hovercraft, which Josh filmed on Monday 15th April 2013 in the Melville Intermediate School Hall.

The hovercraft looked really cool and had this blue tarpish thing underneath it. It had scooter handlebars and its engine was a modified leafblover attached through a tube to power it. It was high compressed air filling insde the tarpish bottom which made it float.
