Looking for a unit way to assess your students understanding of measurement in science while you capture their attention? In this project students will research the measurements of a race car of their choice, then create a poster, digital presentation or physical model of the car. They will have the opportunity to test their lab skills while they choose a racing fuel from a mini laboratory setting. After the completion of the lab, students can then participate in a race simulation based on the results of their project.
