Things to Explore
  • Testing Textures: Down which ramp do you think your car will roll the fastest? Slowest? Why?
  • Long Haul: What’s the longest car you can make? How many pieces did you use?
  • Car Show: Make a cool car? Share it with us @vadiscovery on Instagram!

On your mark, get set, go! Build a customized car piece-by-piece by matching colors and shapes, then race it down six differently sloped and textured ramps and across the finish line as you practice fine motor skills and explore force, mass, motion, and friction.
