The Horizon DIY RACE is a great opportunity for science experiments as it includes a curriculum that allows you to flexibly incorporate it into your class schedule. Whether you are interested in a single day of cool chemistry experiments, a one-week long science fair project, or a month of science experiments in renewable energy during regular classes, it is all possible with Horizon DIY RACE Science Program.
Kids between the ages of 8 and 15 are tasked with using the DIY science kit to design and fabricate a car that is powered by hydrogen. They will first need to sketch out their ideas on paper in order to help them come up with a plan of how they want to build their car model. Next, they will source materials that are strong enough to hold the components for the fuel cell system yet light enough to allow the car to travel as far as possible.
Using our Race Manual you can easily organize the final race for your students so they will test their design in a race against others to see which design is able to travel the furthest.
