About the Class
Engines! Powerhouse of Work
Energy is needed to make everything—from humans to machines—move. Students will explore the concept of energy and work and learn how it is applied to a car. Students will conduct an energy experiment by building a battery-operated car. (Special instructional tool: Functional cutaway race engine, transmission, drive train and rear housing).
