Magnet Car materials

Yesterday, I introduced our magnet car project under the question “how could we use magnets for transportation if we ran out of oil and gas?”

The students will be designing and building a magnet vehicle using materials they have brought from home. They will be doing all the work at school, but the students can brainstorm and come up with a design with their parents if they want! Once they have the design finished, then they will need to come up with a list of materials that they could use to build their magnet vehicle. It doesn’t have to be a car, it could be a boat, tank, or anything that is a vehicle that they will make move (key is to move…. not drag!!).
