Product Description
Are you ready for the windy month of March! This STEM challenge is part of a series about wind-powered devices, but can ★certainly be used all year long!★

▶️ NOTE: This challenge may be purchased as part of money-saving bundles!
Wind Bundle
STEM by the Month

In this challenge, students will be using materials to design a rolling car that is wind-powered. They will have to consider the placement of the car’s axle and the size of the wheels in order to make the best car. Also, they must decide if a very long car is the right way to complete this task. In order to use wind power, the car will need a wind catching device- like a sail! Many decisions will be considered to solve these problems! Finally, the car will be tested by blowing a very strong wind (a fan) on it to see just how far it will travel.

✂️ You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Cardboard tubes
• Wooden skewers
• Masking tape
• Pipe cleaners
• Cardboard pieces
• Cardstock, construction paper, copy paper
• Straws
• Fan

The package specifically includes cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 5 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, 4 pages of photographs, student lab sheet with sample answers, a scoring rubric, and the credits page. Also included is a file containing forms in an editable format.The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1-2class sessions (2 hours) to complete.

This challenge works perfectly with two other wind challenges:
Build a Wind-Powered Boat
Build a Windmill

Or you may purchase all three as part of a money-saving bundle
