Rubber Band Race Car

Learning how pull impacts push

Car Inventory

Students had a race car to explore with.

The forces of push and pull

We experimented with 5cm of rubber and force and 10cm of rubber band force.

We tested our cars on carpet and tile and talked about how friction impacted our results.

Balanced and Unbalanced forces

Spring Scales to Measure Force

We used spring scales to see what happened to our race cars when we pull them in opposite directions and the same direction with balanced and unbalanced force.
