Product Description
This project integrates math, science, art, and engineering in an engaging and fun way! Students are told that they are going to build their own race cars that need to be as FAST as possible, all while staying with their budget of $29,000!

Students choose their car frame (there are 4 to choose from), design the car, put it together, and then add modifications to the race car to make it faster (or not). While designing the vehicle, students keep track of the modifications they make and the money they are spending.

After everyone is done building, they will now find out how GREAT their cars really are by grading the features they added, their car choice, and the modifications made. There is a point rubric given to students to give their car a final grade. This ranks the cars in your class.

There are reflection pages included asking students to discuss why some cars had a high grade, while others may have had lower grades based on the modifications made.

Everything is needed to make this a fun and engaging project at any time of the year!

**I highly suggest printing the cars on cardstock, as regular paper may be a bit too light.

Hope your students enjoy!
