Designing and making a car

on May 15, 2015

Our group name is the Vroom Vroooms and on Thursday, our class was challenged to design and make a moving vehicle powered either by a balloon or a sail with a fixed or non-fixed axle that will travel 60cm. First of all, we came up with a plan and drew it on paper. Second of all we got a plastic box, skewers, a piece of card, Lego wheels and tape. We used the skewers as axles and we used card as a sail. We followed our car around with a balloon to get it to move. It was fun experimenting on our car. Keep looking out for more posts!
