Bilde Excellent. Benini, a technology education teacher a rural Parish Hill High School in Chaplin, Conn., thought it sounded like the perfect project to challenge his students with. He found plans to build a standard hovercraft on the Internet and purchased them for his class. “We build our first craft in just over 10 weeks,” he said. “We were never completely sure it was going to work, but we decided we were going to give this our best shot and see what would happen.” Link.
