Car Launcher

Through this educational program, children will explore the concepts of Energy, Distance Measurement, Friction, and Thrust; and understand the different
ways in which energy makes vehicles move. They will also reflect, experiment, and
express their views on how to give motion to a vehicle that doesn’t have an engine.
Using their imagination and creativity, they will construct their own car launcher!

The aim of the program is for children to:
• Explore basic concepts in physics, mathematics, engineering, and technology.
• Foster skills such as observation, critical thinking, creativity, imagination,
inventiveness, and reasoning.
