Build your very own Army Tank by creating a wooden frame, next create a running belt system for the tank tracks by using gears, wheels, elastic bands and a motor. Finally wire the motor to the battery box. You can use paint or markers to design the tank to your own liking.
This project teaches young people about Kinetic Energy, Gears, Motors and Belts. The Tank operates when the motor is used to convert electrical energy from the battery box into kinetic energy which is then transmitted through the belts, so that the four wheels turn simultaneously to drive the tank forward.
The main parts in this STEM project combines a mixture of:
- Elastic Bands
- Wooden Frame Parts
- Battery Box
