When engineers design something new, they need to think about forces like gravity and friction. Friction is a force that slows and stops moving objects. Without friction, any object that was pushed or pulled would keep moving forever. Build a model car out of GoldieBlox and test the friction of your car on different surfaces to prepare for a Troop Car Chase!
1. Design and build model cars
2. Use model cars to test the friction of different surfaces
3. Race your cars!
When I’ve earned this badge, I will have learned about friction by building and testing model cars. I will know how to design and test new things that I invent.
