Design and engineer a vehicle that is propelled by the energy stored in rubber bands. Make it go for distance, or stop with precision. Design it to go fast, or cross a difficult terrain. Rubber band racers can be easily redesigned/reconfigured, so every day you can have a different challenge. Learn by experiencing potential and kinetic energy, simple machines, friction, elasticity and ratios. Learn how friction can help, and hurt your racer. 

Free document resources help guide kids to build an example racer vehicle, allowing them to explore potential + kinetic energy, mechanical advantage and friction through optional labs or thrilling challenges.  Watch as they evolve their creations through the design + engineering process, raiding the recycling bin for novel materials and affixing 3D printables or workshop elements for innovative vehicles that go faster and farther. 

The Advanced Rubber Band Racer Kit includes additional components to encourage innovation - easily craft (and re-design) new configurations.
