Styrofoam Car 2.0

Today after school, we tried out our new ultra light Syrofoam car 2.0 . It travelled the 5m but we are definate that it could go faster and further. We forgot the glue gun and so used tape. It held together but the wheels were shaky and the axel slid back and forth. Also, we tried it out on the brick floor in the hallway so the bricks could have affected the speed and/or distance that the car could have travelled. We changed up the design a bit but still kept the styrofoam idea. The materials were:
  • a styrofoam container
  • 2 wooden BBQ sticks/ scewers
  • 4 gator board wheels (harder cardboard)
  • 1 straw
  • 1 regular sized ballon

We will try to upload a picture of our car later.
