Students in Mrs. Bradshaw's science classes built and raced Balloon Cars. In this activity students had to apply their knowledge about Newton’s Laws of Motion and Forces to build a balloon race car.  They were supplied with balloons, straws, and tape. Everything else they independently had to design and bring to school to build their car.  The car had to be powered by one inflated balloon.  It had to have at least three wheels, and the wheels had to be made out of something that was not originally intended to be a wheel.
