The Kid Should See This

Make an Air Surfing Foam Walkalong Glider – Science Toy Maker


It’s said that there’s nothing new under the sun, but the first time I saw someone levitating a glider, I couldn’t believe it… Ten years later I was building and flying walkalong gliders with my students. 

And now teacher Slater Harrison shares his Air Surfing Foam Walkalong Glider project on his site, Science Toy Maker. He also has videos about variations on the glider, the history of the experiment, and other easy and more challenging science DIYs. An excellent resource.
