Week 3, The Mclaren Challenge, Part 2, Building
In week 3 of Science club, we continued with the Mclaren Challenge, only this time, it was all about the buildings. It was very interesting to see all the varying designs ccome to life, with some groups sticking to their designs and others changing it as they went along. Several different tactics were tested to see if they would help the car reach 10 metres. Some worked, others did not. At the moment the key to success appears to be easily spinning axels, as this allows for a lot of rolling. This means that even if there is not much power it will still roll quite far. It will be exciting to see how the build finish next week.
