Hovercraft highlights engineering week at the Kentucky Science Center

Posted: Updated:


Building your own hovercraft isn't just a dream any more. The Kentucky Science Center's  Engineering week highlights how science fiction is becoming science fact.

KSC educators Lillian Seitz and Evan McMahon were able to show Jude Redfield, Candyce Clifft and Sterling Riggs how a homemade hovercraft works.


Visitors to the Kentucky Science Center's National Engineering week will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with real-life engineers from Lexmark, LVL 1 Hackerspace, and the University of Louisville to learn about the science that impacts your daily life.

See how rockets work, explode fruit using your brainwaves, and explore other hands-on programs. On Friday, February 22, Lexmark will present activities on Kinetic Energy, Electricity, and Thermal Imaging.

Activities are FREE with paid admission.
