In this fun STEM3Dkits Derby Dash project students will design, print and then build their very own demolition derby car! Once completed, they will go head to head with their classmates in a fun demolition derby challenge to see who has designed and built the ultimate derby car! The last car standing wins!
The course content guides students through the design process, from researching existing concepts, conceptualizing and developing their own ideas to then 3D printing their design. It also instructs them step by step on how to assemble their derby car. In conjunction with the course material, the complete Derby Dash kit from STEM3Dkits includes:
In this project students will learn about the design process as they design their derby car. You may also teach further on electric motors, gears, kinematics and basic principles of physics, such as the conservation of energy.
