Balloon Vehicle Project
We all worked together as a team and made our model work. The project taught us many things. One thing that the project taught us was that if an object is light enough, it can be pushed by air coming out of a balloon and straw. The project also relates to Newton's second law of motion. Because the acceleration and speed of our model depended on how heavy the car was, if the car is too heavy, then it would’ve been harder to be pushed by the air balloon, it would most likely move slowly or not move at all but if it is lighter, it would be easier pushed. Overall, I feel that this was a very fun, cool, interesting, and challenging project that led us to learn new things and learn to work as a team.
