An Hour at the Races

January 21, 2017

It’s amazing how cars have changed over the decades!  We shared our ideas about what makes cars faster now compared to the old days.  Did you know that a long time ago, cars didn’t have engines?  Those probably weren’t very fast.

We build robot cars, customised them and tested different sizes of wheels to see which ones improved speed.  Some of us chose to drag a load during the race to see what effect it had on speed.  We also used a motion sensor to make our robot start on the mark.  Then it was race time!

Great job kids!
