Race Car Design Challenge (Girl Scout Troop)

When engineers design something new, they need to consider how forces like gravity and friction will affect their design. Race car designers add or create special features, parts of something, that help their car to go fast. Engineers create these features to make their products more useful. Design, build, and test your own race car using GoldieBlox to explore how science can make a faster race car!
