A twist on the age-old favorite, an edible car building and design project!
Students are responsible with brainstorming a prototype of their own. Once their prototype is sketched, they will come together as a group to design, build and eventually test a prototype edible race car. Car's will be judged in a variety of categories.
This is a great end of the year project that focuses on the STEM aspects of the design cycle as well as collaboration. This is an extremely high interest lab and the kids absolutely love it.
Warning: Your classroom will get messy!! :)
This was used in a 7th grade classroom, but can be tweaked and altered for all middle and secondary grades. You can spend 3 days on this, or 1.5 weeks, it is entirely up to you. Get your whole school involved and have the kids show off their cars to the whole school! Enjoy and thank you for looking.
