Rubber powered Rolling Car
Energy is neither created nor destroyed: it is only transformed. There are many different forms of energy, including kinetic energy (the energy of motion), potential energy (energy that is considered stored because of an object’s position), mechanical energy (energy that performs work), and thermal (heat) energy. Kinetic and potential energy are often paired together in simple demonstrations, like dropping a book, jumping on a trampoline, or building cool machines like rubber band cars.
Learning outcomes according to the national curriculum of general science
- The hands-on project will be beneficial to develop the concept of the basics of energy and its application.
- Working principle and uses of potential energy.
- The activity will also be helpful for the students to learn about energy conversion, motion, its factors, and significance.
