Alternative Energy Part II - Lesson Eight of Eight - Energy Conversion and Propulsion

Students investigate the results of different propulsion methods. For this propulsion lesson, students measure the distance a test toy car goes using different types of propulsion. They record the distances in data tables before calculating speed using distance and time. They rank the different propulsion systems and discuss which is the fastest, and which would last the longest.
