Create a vehicle that carries a minimum of 10 pennies down an inclined ramp! Teach the basic concepts of physics through design engineering. The KELVIN® Penny Racer® Gravity Track allows young children to create, build and experiment with vehicle design variables, while learning about forces, gravity, weight, motion, momentum and friction.
Students are asked to create a vehicle that will carry a minimum of ten pennies down an inclined ramp. Students will then gather a variety of vehicle performance data including speed and distance traveled as pennies are added and removed from the vehicle, as well as the effects of changing ramp heights. 5 feet long.
