There is an event in Washington DC. It is about science, technology, culture and the arts. One man has a jetpack. He flies in a big building.

A company works on jetpacks. The company is in New Zealand. The company will sell its jetpacks. Over 10,000 people are already interested. The jetpacks will cost $150,000. That is a lot of money. Not everybody can buy a jetpack.

Difficult words: event (meeting), jetpack (special machine you wear on your back that helps you fly), sell (give for money), cost (have price).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
