### Description

Can you design a car that will travel the farthest distance when it leaves a ramp? This activity covers the Next Generation Science Standards of Engineering! There are three differentiated recording sheets:

-One basic one for younger students where they circle the best result after two trials before redesigning their car

-One on which students have three trials and need to find the median

-Finally, one on which older students must find the average of three trials

A tips and suggestions page (including directions for creating a ramp out of classroom materials) and vocabulary list are also in the packet.

YOU NEED building bricks, including WHEELS and AXLES for this activity.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-2
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-3
Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
