The Engineering Design Process has many steps and so many opportunities for students to engage in group problem solving and collaboration. This challenge adds experimentation and keeping data tables to the mix for a fabulous experience!

This STEM Challenge will have your students experimenting with cars and ramps. They will test ramp heights and what happens when weight is added to the cars. Finally, they will use their data as they design and build their own ramps. How does Newton’s laws of Motion fit in this? How high should a ramp be? What happens if you use too much weight? What happens if your ramp is too steep? Does a ramp need side rails? How do you make a smooth transition at the end of the ramp? All questions that will be part of this challenge!

The lesson guide provides a materials list, a preparations list, extra information about Newton’s Laws in simple language, and step-by-step lesson procedures to follow to make this a great experience. Three pages of Helpful Hints will give you ideas of specific things to think about while using this package. A two page lab sheet is included - as well as photos.

•Materials needed in addition to this package include: Cardboard or foam board pieces OR a pre-made ramp system, small cars, pennies (for weights), meter or yard sticks, masking tape, card stock, copy paper, straws, scissors, and hole punchers.
