Pitsco Basswood CO2 DragPak (For 50 Students)

Carbon-dioxide (CO2) dragster kit provides students in grades 6-12 a hands-on activity to design, build, and race a model CO2 dragster that demonstrates the scientific concepts of aerodynamics, motion, drag, and friction
Includes all parts for building a dragster and a lightweight basswood body blank that each student can shape with basic cutting, shaving, or sanding tools for creativity and individuality in the design process
Includes expanded polystyrene foam blanks to allow students to create a prototype body shape

The Pitsco 13244 Basswood DragPak provides students in grades 6-12 a hands-on activity to design, build, and race a model carbon-dioxide (CO2) dragster that demonstrates the scientific concepts of aerodynamics, motion, drag, and friction, and it includes parts for building the model car. The kit includes expanded polystyrene foam blanks, lightweight basswood blocks, plastic front and rear wheels, steel axles, CO2 cartridges, 100-grit sandpaper, screw eyes, brass washers, copies of The Race Car Book, and award certificates for participants in a dragster competition. The froth blocks enable students to experiment with creating a prototype body shape before shaping the wood blocks. Students shape the wood block with basic cutting, shaving, or sanding tools for creativity and individuality within the design process. The Race Car Book teaches automotive design processes and accommodates illustrations and step by step instructions for building a metric CO2 dragster. The kit reinforces engineering, technology, and math concepts as students design and build an effective model dragster. A model dragster kit is most often utilized in an educational setting to demonstrate engineering, aerodynamics, and physics.

Construction requires a drill, a coping saw, a wood file or rasp, a ruler, scissors, finish or paint, and a race system (all sold one by one).

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.

Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
