FORT LORAMIE — The 8th grade students at Fort Loramie were given a STEM project to move a car using Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion – Make a car travel the farthest possible distance using one inflated balloon.
The wining car was constructed by Zack Pleiman and traveled a record breaking 31.5 meters.
A second challenge given to the 8th Period class- design a car to be as fast as possible. The winning car was constructed by Hannah Siegel and reached a max velocity of 2.42 meters per second.
