Newton's Laws: Balloon Cars by Victor Curco on Go-Lab 

In this activity, students works with a balloon powered car to better understand the science ideas of mass and force and explain what causes the balloon car to start moving, using ideas of action and reaction forces. At the end of the activity students should be able to design and build their balloon powered car, use ideas of mass and forces such as thrust, air resistance, wheel friction, to describe what might help their car travel further.
