Engineering - How to Make your own Balloon Rocket Car!

Ages: 7 - 13

Description: Make a car that speeds along with a few puffs of air. It works in the same way as a jet airplane or rocket, as a stream of fast-moving air escapes from a balloon and shoots out from the back of the car, pushing it forward. Blow up a balloon and see how fast and far your car can go.
