Museum at Prairiefire’s JAM Session: Bottle Racers

November 27 @ 10:15 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on December 2, 2021 at 10:15 am

Museum at Prairiefire’s Junior Adventurers at the Museum (JAM) Sessions engage elementary students in fun, hands-on inquiry-based activities to familiarize students with STEM-essentials. In this session for ages 6-10, participants will learn how to make a racer out of a plastic water bottle.

Do you have an empty water bottle lying around? Before you decide to recycle that bottle, you can give it life as a bottle racer. In this engineering activity, you will learn how to turn an ordinary empty water bottle into a rolling machine propelled by energy generated from a rubber band. We will demonstrate two main types of energy in the process: potential and kinetic. Rubber bands store a special type of potential energy, called elastic energy. If you’ve ever used a slingshot before, you know the power of elastic energy!
