The side view of the vehicle.
The top view of what we want our vehicle to look like, at the front we have the ram. We want to go with the F1 design to add flair to the vehicle.
We created a surface to place a washer on, on the inside of the car to reduce friction between the car and the axis. But, we realized we had made them too small and had to remake them.
Looking at multiple possible designs for the vehicle as well as how to power the vehicle by rubber bands.
Testing out the idea of putting rubber bands around the wheels in order to increase the amount of traction the wheels can get on the ground.
Testing out the newly cut wooden wheels we made inside of the innovation gym.
Measuring out the holes in the wheels in order to make sure it all fits perfectly. This picture was taken before we realized we didn’t need washers to reduce friction.
A design for our lever that will not only activate the “get ready” portion of our vehicle but also release the lock on the wheels allowing the vehicle to move forward.
Our “very rough” sketch of our prototype. The goal of our vehicle is to lift the hula-hoop in order to allow the ping pong balls to roll away.
Originally we were planning on making our wheels out of cardboard or foam-core. But we realized that if we made the wheels out of wood our vehicle would be more stable, and have a smoother ride.
