​Inspire Science Program CO2 Cars
 
Over the last few weeks some budding Buddina scientists have been designing and building the fastest CO2 powered dragsters on 4 wheels.
The team have been working closely with Mr Auger (our science expert!) who has led them through a design cycle of research and development. They have looked at many examples, designed their prototypes and built and decorated some pretty cool cars!
On Tuesday the final test was completed to see which dragster was the fastest. Under test conditions, the cars all travelled 20 metres in just over one second … with the fastest car traversing the distance in 1.107 sec at about 65 kph!!
Congratulations to Noah Newbury for building the sleekest, fastest CO2 powered dragster, just beating Julian Menrath’s dragster by 0.45 of a second!!
