STEC@UKZN live experiment of the week – Balloon-Powered Car
Join us every week for a short fun science experiment.
This week: In the Balloon-Powered Car, we’ll show you how to build your own racer and then use air pressure to zip it across a surface.
What you will need for this experiment:
- A piece of cardboard about 7×15 cm e.g. from a box
- A small lid or bottle cap
- A piece of cardboard for the wheels (it should be large enough to fit 4 circles the size of your lid or bottle cap)
- 1 balloon
- 2 skewers
- Pencil or pen
