A new and exciting spin on the Rubber Band Powered Car physics projects. To build their cars the students has to 'purchase' materials as they go and build their cars based off a strict budget.
Not only will your student's need to apply their physics knowledge to build the fastest and longest driving car they need to understand cost of supplies and manage their finances closely.
This project usually takes about 2 weeks to complete. The first week is set aside for purchasing materials and constructing their cars and the second week is spent racing their cars and concluding their results.
