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.
Level: Year 6 to 9 / Middle school
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.
