Product Description
STEM Challenge: It’s another fabulous challenge using Newton’s Laws of Motion! Students will love this egg car challenge and the experimenting with their egg cars and ramps!

Note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!

In this challenge students will use materials to design and create a vehicle. The vehicle must transport cargo down a ramp in the fastest and safest way possible. The students will need to plan the best way to overcome friction and maintain enough speed to make it down the ramp. In addition, the vehicle will have to be stable enough to transport the precious cargo without damaging it. The cargo just happens to be an egg! Can they build a safe vehicle? How will they get the vehicle to slide or roll down the ramp? Will the cargo arrive safely? What will happen if the angle of the ramp is changed? Finally, because my students really love this feature, I added a budget. Students must “purchase” materials to use and stay within a set spending amount.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Craft sticks, Straws, Cardboard pieces, Cardboard tubes, Masking tape, Wooden skewers, Round objects for wheels, Plastic and real eggs, Pipe cleaners, Rubber bands, Paper clips and binder clips, Weights (like pennies) for the eggs, and a Ramp. The ramp can be a long piece of cardboard or foam board. Side “rails” are optional, but helpful!

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 5 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, a special page of information about Newton’s Laws of Motion, 4 pages of photographs, student lab sheet, two versions of the Cost and Planning sheet, an editable Cost and Planning sheet, a Bonus Lesson idea about using small die-cast cars and track to demonstrate the laws of motion, a scoring rubric, and the Terms of Use page. All forms are editable! Student answer sheets are not included, but samples from student work are included in the teacher direction pages. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 2 class sessions to complete.

This challenge works perfectly with these two:
Build a Bottle Car
Build a Newton’s Cradle

All three Newton challenges are available in a money-saving bundle!
