In these challenges, have a go at building something and then testing your creation. Don't worry if it doesn't work first time! Can you improve your design, or choose better materials?
Ideas for Wheeled Vehicle Challenge
Here are some ideas of how to power your wheeled vehicle (adding power is a bonus challenge!). These are all external links and are just some of Susan’s favourites to get you started!
Balloon cars: Number 5 on promo video, for a fantastic book
Balloon cars: Video of the same design but without learning about the brilliant investigating and questioning skills that are in the book

We challenge your creativity in these videos - what can you make?
Two different challenges - one is about exploring where you live online and the other is about using 3D software, which is something that engineers, architects and designers use all the time.
This challenge has lots of different options for activities that you could do!
