A long corridor at the A. MacArthur Barr Middle School in the state of New York is converted into a race track for CO2 powered model cars.
Created were the competing race cars of 8th graders in a seven-week course. The goal is to bring a block of wood in an aerodynamic shape as possible. A compartment in the rear area is to be provided for the CO2 cartridge, for example, we know from Sodawassergeräten.
But now the particular part of the project. The wheels are printed by the students themselves with a 3Dand the MakerBot Replicator designed desktop . This is about form and function, the teacher Vinny Garrison wants to bring the students closer to the basis of this project.
“They look forward to eighth grade,” said technology teacher and race director Vinny Garrison. “It’s a project did kids remember.”
