Collision Course
    View PHOTOS and VIDEOS of this year's challenge HERE

    Using only the parts provided in the standard K'nex kit, design a vehicle that will travel down a specified course, collide with and derail, destroy, demolish, or obliterate another vehicle built with matching criteria traveling in the exact opposite direction on a collision course.  The vehicle that remains on the track or demonstrates the least displacement will be the winner of the momentum challenge.



    Student teams study the concepts of mass, velocity, acceleration, and momentum to help them design, build, and test the best vehicle possible.  They use their knowledge of momentum to predict which vehicle should win each round of the competition.  The only problem is, the one with most momentum doesn't always win - as some teams outfit their vehicle with offensive or defensive devices made from K'nex to give them an advantage.  Check out the photos and videos as they are posted!
