Sturdy car: The drop test

Design and construct a car that remains intact when dropped from ankle to mid-shin height onto the floor. Vary the drop height to make the activity more or less challenging.

Hint: The car doesn’t necessarily have to include the EV3, NXT or RCX brick (and saving the brick from a hard knock might help it last longer). Does including the brick make it more or less stable?

Note: The lesson plan attached to this post was designed as part of a series of introductory WeDo lessons but is relevant to all building systems (i.e. RCX, NXT, EV3, …).
