Rubber Band Rovers (Fab Lab)

Participants work in small teams to design and build a rover using cardboard and rubber bands, and then test it to see how far it goes on a flat surface. They use 2D design software and (with adult help) a laser cutter, and learn about friction as well as kinetic vs. potential energy.
