Year 6 wind-powered vehicles

12th Oct 2018

As part of their topic ‘Energy & the Environment’, Year 6 designed and created wind-powered vehicles.

They worked in teams to brainstorm the most suitable materials for their vehicles. They designed their vehicles and created them using recycled materials and objects from home.

They used a fan as their wind source and tested the vehicles to see how far they would travel. They measured the distance using a metre stick.

Finally, they each evaluated their designs & discussed the changes/improvements they would make if they were to repeat the investigation.

The winning vehicle travelled 2 metres 30 cm!! 💨🏎
