​Voyagers Kick Off Science Unit With the Life Saver Car Challenge

Students on the Voyager Team were given 10 straws, 2 pieces of construction paper, tape, scissors, four life savers and told to work with a partner in creating the fastest car possible powered by air. Kids excitedly went to work using their problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaborative skills to design and build cars of every shape and style. Each class identified its fasted car and classroom winners competed with one another to determine the fastest Life Saver Car. The buzz in Voyager hallway was palpable – the kids loved it! What a fun way to kick off the upcoming 4th grade science unit on Forces, Energy, and Motion!
