As part of our unit on Electricity & Magnetism, the grade fives took some time to explore how circuits work by building some electric cars. We explored how an electric motors worked using magnetism and current. Each student started with the same car and were able to tinker and modify it from there. It was time to have a good old fashioned race.
Forget the Indy 500 or Formula 1, The FC 500 is where it's at.
