Tons of fun and lots of opportunity for creative problem-solving -- weight, size, power classes. Drag racing vs. handling courses, hazards like bumps and changes in surface texture, even water hazards. Keep posting the videos. It's fun to see the creative young minds at work, er, I meant play.

Thanks Jake, we recently just had another one with 5 warriors going, it was crazy, borderline unsafe. LOL

This reminds me of slot car racing. Perhaps you are on to something here. I like the open ended inventive direction you've got these kids going. Awesome project. I kind of want to have a go at designing a "land air boat".

What you and the students are doing is great! I wish these types of things had been around when I was a kid ( control line, and freeflight back then). My Daughter is a junior high science teacher a few miles south of Loveland, and I keep showing her what you are doing. Hopping she will catch the bug, but her schedule is already crazy.
You are, as are all teachers who go the extra mile, to be commended.
A FAN!!!
