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.
