March 2008 – Rubberband Car Challenge

Students were given the challenge of constructing a wind-up rubberband car.  After research and design phases they got into the building stage with varying success.  The outright winner was ‘Team Thompson’ (owned and developed by design maestro Jamie Thompson) whose car was raced on the day by Lee ‘The Real Deal’ Buchanan.  With a winning distance of 43.5cm, the competition were left scratching their heads – as can be seen in the pics below.
