Make it Move

Description of the task:
Students are asked to design and build a vehicle that can be moved by pushing or pulling. Once they have built their vehicle they are asked to test them. They may need to modify their design and re-test their vehicle. Once they have built their vehicles students will be provided with additional materials with which to investigate how to change the speed of their vehicle when it is moving.
