Wednesday, September 21 – 2:30 pm to 4:30 (ish)

The challenge is to create a car powered by the elastic quality of rubber bands. This is the first of our “circle in a square” series. You will learn how to find the center of any circle by using only a piece of paper and a pencil. This should come in handy when fixing your axle to the wheels!
