The Classroom Motorized Zipline Spaceship project is a team-based activity. Students will design and build a spaceship out of re-usable materials such as cardboard boxes and water bottles, and utilize electronics skills to attach hobby motors.
Teams will need to apply both creativity and ingenuity to this project in order to keep the spaceship balanced on the zipline and compete in a race for the fastest ship in the galaxy!
Our science-technology-engineering-art-math (STEAM)-based kits come with everything you need to facilitate creative, hands-on electronics projects including the parts and easy to follow instructions.
The Classroom Zipline Spaceship Kit comes with electronics for small teams of students to make 6 spaceships.
