On your mark, get set-go! Students build eleven different vehicles to observe how energy can be stored and then transferred to kinetic energy to produce motion. Students will experiment with a spring-driven motor, flywheel motor, battery-operated motor, and even wind energy to compare the benefits of the different energy sources. Building these fast-paced cars is sure to stimulate your students' interest in engineering, Newton's laws of motion, and the conservation of energy.
Each kit includes enough materials and Building Instruction Booklets for four student groups and 442 pieces packaged in a durable plastic storage tub. Two battery motors, two flywheel motors and four transparent spring-drive motors, and a comprehensive Teacher's Guide with seven inquiry-based activities are included.
