The Multi-Powered Lab Car

OneCar is a comprehensive STEM program that allows students to explore mechanics, energy and motion in exciting ways.  Each OneCar has a car chassis, four wheels and supplies to allow students to create at least 6 different powered versions.  Students design and use a solar panel, electric motor, capacitor, kitchen chemicals, compressed air, propeller and more to get the car moving. And best of all, no soldering is required!  OneCar is our in-house developed, classroom product and we are excited to bring this to you.

The Classroom Pack contains components to construct 8 OneCars.  Also included are Instruction master sheets and you can view or download the Teacher’s Notes with guidelines for extended classroom activities & investigation (see below).  The kits can be de-constructed for multiple use from year to year.

The emphasis is on an ‘open-ended lab‘ where students have the opportunity to design, develop and try new creative ways of propelling the car.  The basic car provides a working, low friction platform from where students can start their discovery. We worked hard to make this classroom STEM project simple, safe & clever.  We trust that it will make your classroom an inspiring and engaging space.

Included in pack

  • Sufficient parts to construct 8 OneCars, making 8 battery cars, or 8 capacitor cars, or 8 solar cars, or 8 air cars, or 8 propeller cars or 8 chemical cars.  With a few extra parts the cars can further be converted into Elastic and Mousetrap powered cars.  A very versatile concept!
