Send this racer flying with an electric motor and propeller. Design it for speed by designing the frame and propeller blades. Learn through experimentation. Evolve it using the Design & Engineering Process. This activity requires materials from the recycling bin to create the propeller blades. 

Start by building the example Air Racer with the Build Guide, then take your design to the next level with unique Design & Engineering Challenges. Make it go faster and farther by changing blade shape, size, and material. 

Make It Your Own: The documents for this activity are available in PDF and Microsoft Word format.
