This week Mrs. Sam and her 8th grade students had a stupendous time making air balloon cars.
This activity shows that there are many ways to power a car, one being the power of air pressure.
With a balloon, glue, cardboard,bottle caps, and straws students became engineers of their own four wheeled vehicles. With the right tools, they had to construct air balloon cars that would speed off with ease, correcting their errors as they tested their new inventions.After testing their cars, groups were then allowed to race their cars against their fellow classmates with great enjoyment. Once again our science department has shown us that science is fun and engaging. We encourage activities that will allow our students to use critical thinking to create things that only they can dream of.
Thank you Mrs. Sam for encouraging our students to build and create in the wonderful world of science!
