In this 5 lesson project, students will begin by learning about forces, motion and Newton's Third Law. Using this knowledge, students will embark on a creative journey to design and 3D print their own functional, balloon powered dragster! Their aim is to create a vehicle that can travel as far as possible in a straight line and in the final lesson, they will compete against each other using their own unique dragsters.
