STEM: Lou-Vee Air Car

This STEM: Lou-Vee Air Car lesson plan also includes:

A comprehensive lesson on acceleration awaits your physicists and engineers! Two YouTube videos pique their interest, then sample F=ma problems are worked and graphed. The highlight of the lesson is the building of a Lou-Vee air car! Emerging engineers find its mass and compute its acceleration in order to figure out the force provided by the "engine." Math and science collide in this forceful feat!
