Balloon Car Maths

After creating and exploring the science behind our balloon cars yesterday we used them for maths today.

We practised measuring distance in metres & centimetres and time in seconds. Then we calculated the speed of our cars by dividing the distance traveled by the time taken.

One thought on “Balloon Car Maths”

  1. STEM is a fantastic way to apply skills across different subjects. Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths all in the one activity. I wonder what happened to make one of the balloon cars go further than the rest? Imagine the listening skills and following directions that pupils used doing this fun task.
