Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. Wind Powered Car Challenge 1
Students or teams of students will complete a wind powered car. Students can use recycled materials or commercially sold items (BE CREATIVE). Or, use a used/clean lunchroom milk carton. The car cannot exceed 24 x 24 x 24. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 2
Place a somewhat powerful electric fan on the ground. Measure how far your car was pushed by the wind. Compete with other students to see whose wind car can travel the farthest. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 3
