Vacuum-Powered Car Kit!

vacuum-powered car

Put together this kit of laser-cut plywood parts and you'll have a working model car that runs entirely on atmospheric pressure. Wind it up, let it go, and race it across the floor!

No metal springs. No rubber bands. No electronics, motors or batteries. How does it work?!

A science experiment? A lesson in mechanics? Yes, of course, but it's also great fun!

The kit contains:

plywood pieces,

bamboo axles,

rubber pipe,

syringe,

nylon fishing wire,

thin copper wire,

parts for extra wheel-set

instructions.

NOTE - you'll need wood glue (or similar) to complete this model.

Approximate size of assembled car - 23cm long, 5cm wide, 8cm high (9" x 2" x 3")

NOT SUITABLE FOR INFANTS - small parts
