The theme for this week’s Unplugged Project was fast. This is a fast post because the week went really fast, and we will soon be flying in a fast airplane to France.
We did experiment with some rubber band powered cars, and finally succeeded in making an original prototype from a Knex Set that went very fast…for about 6 inches. I think the axle needs work, as does the length of the rubber band. It was fun, even though our model obviously needs improvements.
If you have budding engineers at your house, try this project and see what you can come up with!
Here are a few links to get you started:
If you did a fast-themed Unplugged Project this week then please link to your post below (not just your blog, we always want to be able to find your fast post). If you didn’t do a fast project, then don’t link, but please read more about how to join in the Unplugged Project here. We’d love to have you!
Since I will be away until August 6th, the Unplugged Project will be on vacation also (although, if anyone is interested, I hope to post a few virtual postcards from France, perhaps even one a day if I can!).
The next Unplugged Project will be Monday August 10th and the theme will be:
I bet we’ll have a lot of photos by the time we get home, and you’ll have a lot of time to think about what you will do with your photos!
Enjoy and have fun!
