ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

  • Build a car out of only the materials provided. Each team is given the same materials.
  • The car will be powered by the balloon.
  • You are only given one balloon! Your team will blow up the balloon that will power your car. You can put as much air into it as you’d like, but if it bursts, you don’t get another balloon.
    • The car must roll or scoot on the ground (no rocket-like / purely airborne vehicles will be accepted)
    • The car must be able to carry a ping pong ball.
    • The car that travels the furthest, linear distance wins!
