Contenders-Pine Wood Derby

Our first skill for this school year was the Pinewood Derby. We were at Orlando Science Center and they had the Pinewood Derby, I was so excited because we missed the group getting together for the Pinewood Derby but we got to done it anyways. 

DMan's Pinewood Derby Car- which we bought at our local hobby shop and DMan and his dad put it together. The Pinewood Derby Car came out awesome and DMan got to spend time with his dad which he LOVES!!!!!

DMan racing two cars at the Orlando Science Center. Learning about science in motion.This summer we did a Unit Study(Amanda Bennett) on roller coasters so DMan understood this concept so that was great to apply it. 

Be on the lookout for our next skill.

How fun! I remember making a little car with my grandpa when I was younger. Now that he's gone, I cherish that memory.

My little guy loved things like this when he was a little younger. Now at almost 13 it just isn't gonna happen.
