Assembly Instructions – Cars
The car kit is designed to use:
- multiple gear configurations
- front wheel alignment design allows for adjustment to sun’s position in the sky
- variety of wheel choices
- a body design created by the car builder
The car kit is linked to National Curriculum outcomes in science, mathematics, sustainable development, geography and Design & Technology and Maths.
It is possible to build a body for the car. We have designed a template for this. It allows anyone building the body to design their own ‘fun body’. It could be decorated either by hand using paint, felt tip pens etc. or one could use an appropriate computer drawing program found in most schools.
You can download the body templates from our website to personalise your car design.
