Event description

Description

Students are issued with a kit and specifications to build the lightest, most aerodynamic dragster they can. The balsa blank, axles and wheels are the same for everyone as is the CO2 canisters the dragsters are fitted with. On the day they race on a 20m track along a fishing wire guideline. Good Dragsters complete this in under a second and we use a timer rated to 1000th of a second. Only racers that meet the specifications can have their time bounded. There are four proposed categories

  1. Primary (Years 5 and/or 6) CO2 Dragster - Aesthetics (the best-looking design)

  2. Secondary (Years 7 - 9) CO2 Dragster - Aesthetics (the best-looking design)

  3. Primary (Years 5 and or 6) CO2 Dragster - Best time

  4. Secondary (Years 7 - 9) CO2 Dragster - Best time

Dragsters will be run three times for the best time
