What is the project about?
This car has the basic electrical components with an added twist. Pupils can improvise and change the body of the car using any bottles or cardboard they can find around the house. You can have great fun to modify, test and race! In this project pupils can investigate key topics in the science, design & technology, engineering, art and maths curriculum’s. Pupils will develop dexterity and leadership skills whilst assembling this project. The successful assembly will see students explore energy, forces and simple mechanic motions.
You will receive pre-programmed boards and insulated wires that will communicate with you Android device.
