Being twisted is a good thing for this activity! Students build a racer from laser-cut parts and then use the power in a twisted rubber band motor to run the propeller, making the car fly down the track. This is a great way to start teaching torsion and potential energy.
Building a car has never been easier. With the Fold-N-Roll Maker Project, students can build simple, folded cars and launch them down the included ramp for fun vehicle-design based activities. The project includes the Fold-N-Roll GS Pack, which has vehicle templates, axles, wheels, two test ramps, and a Dr. Zoon Fold-N-Roll Video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Magnetic levitation is used to create faster, quieter, and smoother transit systems. In the Maglev Maker Project, students can created their own maglev vehicle and begin learning about the wonders of magnetism. The project includes enough Levitator Maglev Vehicles for 30 students, the Dr. Zoon Maglev Video, and a Maglev II Track. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Everyone in the class has a shot at levitation with our Maglev Vehicles – GS Package. The pack has enough materials for 30 students to build Levitator Maglev Vehicles, including 30 car templates, 30 precut card-stock bases, 100 ceramic magnets, a Maglev II Track, and a Dr. Zoon Maglev Video.
Use the power of rubber bands to create a vehicle with the Prop Racer Maker Project. The project includes a Prop Racer Class Pack, Prop Racer System, five Rubber Band Winders, six bottles of HD Bond II, and a Prop Racer video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Harness the unlimited energy of the Sun to power a solar car! This Getting Started package includes everything you need to introduce your students to this alternative fuel. Includes a solar car book, the Solar Designer video, and materials for 25 student vehicles.
Saving energy in transportation is at the top of the list these days. This Getting Started package provides materials for 30 students to design, build, and test their own solar cars, including six Ray Catcher Solar Panels that students share.
Now it’s easy to give an entire classroom a hands-on experience with solar energy. This Getting Started package – featuring the easy-to-assemble SunEzoon Solar Car – includes the Dr. Zoon SunEzoon Video and enough materials for students to build 30 solar cars.
Solar energy is all around us and is an important renewable energy resource. With the SunEzoon Maker Project, students can learn about solar energy while designing their own simple solar car. The project includes everything you need to make a solar car such as solar panels, alligator clamps, motors, wheels, steel axles, gears, and more, and it also comes with a Dr. Zoon SunEzoon Video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
Try this low-calorie approach to solar energy! This package has enough materials for 30 students to build a SunZoon Lite Solar Car, plus it has the SunZoon Lite video.
If you are looking for a simple but entertaining way to demonstrate potential energy, this Toolbox Racer does the trick. It uses the energy in the measuring tape’s spring to move the racer forward.
Just a few laser-cut parts glue together easily for a quick build. Includes enough kits and tape measures for 30 cars, twine, and the Toolbox Racer video.
Potential energy is a surprising thing. Sometimes, an object as simple as a tape measure can have an unexpected amount of power. With the Toolbox Racer Maker Project, students can tap into the potential energy of tape measures to create a simple race car. The project includes the Toolbox Racer Pack, Toolbox Racer Start Gate, glue, tape measures, duct tape, kite string, and a Toolbox Racer video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
