Factory Works

Factory Works encourages children to explore basic science and physics concepts by using variables in the construction and testing of a racecar.

Challenge Questions for Kids

Encourage your children to test variables through experimentation:

1. Will a taller car move faster than a smaller car?
2. Will a heavier car move faster than a lighter car?
3. Which track is faster?
