Gravity and Friction, two forces we are always up against can be used to our advantage. Learn to put these forces to good use by building a car whose speed depends on gravity. Can you design a car with the greatest potential energy? This is your opportunity to make predictions and record your hypotheses. Race against your friends down our curved ramp. Make your car unique by designing how it looks too.

Then make a gravity-defying climbing person. Master the speed of rope climbing with your creation and race to the top with a bit of friendly competition.

This will definitely be a day of speed, agility, and loads of fun!
