Introduction: Wheelyyy

FINAL PRODUCT

Step 1: Step 1

First we chose what pieces we wanted to use for the kinetic sculpture. We used:

- wheels

- 5 red bars

- 2 gray bars

- 2 large wheels

- 2 small wheels

- 6 yellow connectors

- 2 blue connectors

- 5 tan connectors

- 1 green connectors

- 5 rubber bands

-2 gray end pieces

Step 2: Step 2

We built the base first and worked our way up from there. We added 2 different sizes of wheels (big in the front and small in the back) to make it more sturdy. We put 2 connectors on either side of each wheel so it wouldn't move while it was in motion.

Step 3: Step 3

Once we finished we tested out final sculpture. It ended up working really well. It went twice as far as it was supposed to with such a simple design. To make it go as far as it did, wind up the elastic as far as it can go and then release the sculpture on a flat surface.
