Your students will learn engineering concepts from first principles as they make, modify and optimise this geared racing car. To get the most out of their vehicle a good understanding of friction, downforce, weight and gear ratios is needed, and this comes through making the car and putting ideas to the test. Measuring speed, and comparing it with weight and gear ratio is an important step in this process. And when your students think they have the best car, it¹s time to race them against each other.
This project is rich with engineering content and backed up with a full set of teaching resources. Ideal for introduction to CAD and CNC machining, the teaching resource pack includes CAD tutorials and examples ready to send to your CNC router.
