• Energy, Velocity, Acceleration, & Deceleration 
    Technology and Engineering
    Students will adapt the rubber band car/vehicle from the previous project to compete in an acceleration/deceleration challenge and a ramping challenge.


    Student teams study gearing, energy & forces, velocity, acceleration, deceleration, and design a series of alterations to their rubber band car, making it eligible to compete effectively in the challenges given by Mr. Roth. 
    Students will work in teams to solve the problem. Close collaboration of teams is essential to ensure a working final product.
