#### Rating: 4 Air-Powered Racers Part 1by Pitsco

Pressurized bottle racers are released from a launcher and travel down the track. A racer’s average velocity is calculated by determining the time it takes the dragster to travel a set distance. This velocity is then converted to miles per hour. Read More

Work is the ability to move an object a certain distance by applying a force. Pressurized air has the potential to do work. The amount of work that pressurized air can do is equal to the energy stored in the pressurized system. Stored energy is called potential energy. The potential energy of a . . . Read More

#### Rating: 4 Exhilarating Acceleration!by  Pitsco

Pitsco's CO 2 Dragsters activity involves the designing, prototyping, producing, and testing of a CO 2 dragster made from a small block of wood. The dragster is powered by a CO 2 cartridge, which when punctured by an electronic launch module, propels the dragster down a 20-meter track in . . .

Pitsco’s Custom Cruiser activity involves the designing and racing of a CO 2 -powered custom cruiser. From a small block of wood, the dragsters are modeled after a specific vehicle and powered by a CO 2 cartridge. Attention to the details of the cruiser design earns more points than the . . .

#### Rating: 4 It’s a Dragby  Pitsco

Students observe and predict drag for CO 2 cars

#### Rating: 4 Origami on Wheelsby  Pitsco

Pitsco’s Fold-N-Roll activity is origami on wheels. Using preprinted designs or designs of their own, students construct a simple paper vehicle. Designs are folded, taped, and decorated before wheels and axles are added. Mass is recorded and distance traveled is recorded and compared. The . . .

#### Rating: 4 Pre-race Predictionsby  Pitsco

Students predict race outcome by testing cars in wind tunnel.

#### Rating: 4 Whirl Swirl!by  Pitsco

Students visualize airflow and turbulence of their CO 2 dragster.

#### Rating: 3 CNC Dragstersby  Pitsco

The use of technology to produce prototypes and products is all around us. In this competition, students use CAD and CAM software and hardware to produce a CO 2 dragster that will travel down a 20-meter track in the least amount of time.
