The Flying Buttresses will teach you how to safely make working miniature, water-powered 'hydraulic pistons' from easily found materials without needing to “shell out”. They will then demonstrate how these can be used to move a tortoise puppet that can turn from side to side, slide its head in and out of its shell and open its mouth.
