Product Overview

Vehicle Safety Design and CO2 Dragsters

This start-up package includes all the supplies that students will need to design, build and launch a CO2 dragster. Hands-on activities include adding safety features to the vehicle's design so that students can study the effects of seatbelts, bumpers, and airbags on "egg" passengers (not included).

Problem-solving is used to evaluate why some designs were better for the 'passengers' than others. Students can compete to see which vehicle is the safest or can travel the farthest or fastest. Grades 6-12.
