Your group is going to learn about the frame/chassis of a car and then build one that can be consistently launched into a tub of water using a ramp, protractor and spring scale. Each group will be given four plastic wheels and two axles to attach to their chassis.
Your team is going to build a frame for a car that will launch the car into water using a spring scale and protractor. You will study frames/chassis and then begin to engineer one. The next step is to build the frame onto the chassis. You will attach a GoPro to the car if you have one. Next measure the angle of the ramp with a protractor. You will attach a spring scale to a bungee cord. When you figure out the right angle with the protractor and the right amount of newtons, you will be able to consistently launch the car into the pool.
