SAIL CAR STEM KIT
Build a Sail Car using inexpensive materials to demonstrate how wind can propel an object. Gather measurements, record changes in variables and use simple engineering design concepts to create sails that can push the car the furthest or fastest.
The kit contains enough materials to make one Sail Car and requires approximately one class period.
Recommended year range: K to Year 12.
• Wooden craft balls
• Shaped Corflute base
Additional materials required:
• Electric fan
• Sticky tape
Wire cutters to cut skewers
Measuring tape and masking tape to define a race track
Books or images that show examples of different sail shapes, sizes and number of sails.

ACSSU076 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Moving - Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance
ACSSU117 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Machines - Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attraction, acting on the object
ACSSU155 - Physical Sciences - Energy Forms - Energy appears in different forms, including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and energy transformations and transfers cause change within systems
