Y6 created Rubber Band Racers. It was hard work but they persevered, collaborated, tried different approaches and solved problems.

What's going on?

When you turn the wheels of the racer, you give the rubber band elastic potential energy (increase store of energy). When you release the wheel, the rubber band unwinds, the axle spins and the wheels turn. The potential energy is transformed into kinetic energy (motion energy).
