Not Just a Lot of Hot Air at Pottstown High School

Steve Park, director of career technology at Pottstown High School, was itching to take this student-built hovercraft out for a spin, but he doesn't have his license yet.

Did you have to do a lot of assembling Christmas morning?

Toys, computers, bicycles?

Well at least you didn't have to build a hovercraft.

But students in Andy Bachman's Engineering Technology class at Pottstown High School did.

Recently, they learned about the power of air by designing, building and testing their own hovercraft.

Director of Career Technology Steve Park gets to sit in the craft but because he does not have his hovercraft license yet, he had to be content with sitting.

However, PHS Senior Ernest McCalvin does have his license and gets to drive the craft down the hall of the school.
