5th Grade: Wind-Powered Cars

During their CU TEAMS classes, taught by a graduate level engineering student from CU Boulder, 5th Graders have been learning about renewable and non-renewable energy sources.  Students explored wind energy by creating wind-powered cars.  Each group was able to create a mast and sail that would catch the most wind from a fan.  They then tested their cars to see if it would make it all the way down the runway.
