Derby car design

Course Description

Why learn this course?
Cars fascinate people. They always have! They break the barrier of age. Not just because they help us move to and from different places, but of the fact they are a technological marvel. We have been on the move upon the wheels since the invention of the steam engine. It wasn't just the cars that moved, the entire human race moved forward!

From steam engines to electric engines we have come a long way. Ever since the first car, they evolved in multiple dimensions like design, efficiency, looks, needs, fuels, comfort and more. It is essential to understand the evolution of cars, and what necessitated the improvisations, and how can a basic understanding of science can help in designing a car. This camp is all about exploring all these multi-dimensions in designing a car

Camp Overview

Why should you choose this camp? How do we drive the curriculum? What would your kid learn from this camp?

Is car all about engine?

  • Energy can never be created or destroyed? but why? Kids understand the concepts of Motion, Energy with activities and experiments

Build, race, and experiment

  • Time for kids to get their Engineer mind in use. Will wood working, measuring, analyzing and optimizing. Kids start assembling their own car

Curriculum and learning process

  • Physics
    • Centre of mass
    • Friction
    • Energy, conservation of energy
    • Speed, velocity, acceleration, momentum
    • Lift, weight, thrust, drag
    • Newton's laws of motion

Me and my son Jisnu attended Vivek Devaraj's program. really its very good exposure for my kid. my special thanks to them who took excellent effort in making the program in right way

Why do we have wheels?

  • The story of wheels. Learning concepts of physics like friction, energy loss with experiments to understand different type of wheels

Learning outcomes

  • Understanding part of cars
  • Basics of designing a car
  • Design a derby pinewood car

Can design improve speed of the car?

  • Aerodynamics plays a critical role in all moving objects. Kids play with different models the importance of the shape of the car and the designs

Scrutiny and race!

  • Well Engineering is trial and error. There is always scope for improvement. Kids learn from their previous mistakes and race again!

Foundation is very important for kids to build up their knowledge. Without that your kid will have struggle throughout school years and there after. I feel all kids around the world should get opportunities to learn from Mango education.
