Design for Speed challenges students to apply STEM knowledge and design skills. Students engage in competitive engineering with the goal of creating the fastest and most eye-pleasing balsa wood or basswood dragster. They first develop a car concept and then build it. After a battery of tests and a speed test of their prototypes, they head back to the drawing board. Students analyse their cars for drag, mass, lift, and conformity to specifications, all with the aim of making the fastest car in the room for the culminating Day at the Races event. An aesthetics competition provides an added dimension and entices students who have an artistic flair.

Extensive web support is included such as online data tracking and exclusive access to instructional videos for each phase of the activity. Teacher familiarity with tool use and woodworking methods is required.

This unit includes the following:
  • 25 Balsa Wood Metric Dragster Kits.
  • 24 Metric Dragster Go/No Go Gauges.
  • Science of Speed Design for Speed Teacher Guide.
  • 24 student logbooks.
  • 100 multi-view drawing sheets and more!


(The dragster launcher is not included.)
