Low Prep Unit!! Just print and gather STEM materials.
Goal: Students will create an aerodynamic car that can travel the greatest distance in the shortest amount of time. The car will travel down a ramp. Distance traveled will be measured from the bottom of the ramp.
Students will explore how wheel and axles, air resistance, and mass effect the speed of a car they design. This unit is laid out step by step for the teacher and students. Students watch a video or two, answer a few questions, and explore the concept through experiments.
