“Engineering Project: Balloon Car”, an experiment detailed by Jennifer Sallas on betterlesson.com, is a good resource for any teacher who is looking for a fun experiment to model after. In this lesson plan Sallas provides steps for an experiment that teaches students about mobility by having them use the scientific process when constructing their own car models. In this experiment the students witness the original car production video and would then decide how to proceed on building their own cars. This experiment is great for teaching variables, scientific decision making, and how physics affects objects. If any teachers is looking for a fun experiment to allow students to build their own cars and learn about physics, then this is a great resource to model after.
