Rubberband Car Challenge

Post by jcaron24 »

Many of my students are creating a slingshot style car within the guide lines / rules. All components are attached to the car and stay intact. Is this OK :?: Thank you!

Hi - yes, as long as your students are following all the other rules (e.g. they're not building a slingshot with separate launcher and projectile parts or where the rubber band is not attached from the car), this style of car is OK!
