The super capacitor racer is a fun but serious STEM learning resource. It involves a short activity in which students investigate and make design decisions, which affect the distance travelled by a model racer.
The racer is designed for bench top use and can travel 1m - 10m on a full charge. The range depends on the efficiency decisions and actions students make. Charging takes one minute using a USB lead connected to a PC.
This kit requires assembly, including soldering.
- Laser cut Perspex racer chassis (pre cut, no need for laser cutter).
- All the pulleys, wheels, axles and motor required to complete the racer.
- A super capacitor charge control board that can be charged from the USB port of a computer. This is then used to power the racer.
The STEM racer has been developed by A. Cooper and H. Johnson in Partnership with Kitronik and the Design and Technology Association
This kit is designed and manufactured in the UK by Kitronik.
