How Fast Should Your Buggy Be?

One of the units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. Children design and make a controllable, battery-powered toy vehicle using card, wood, found materials, mechanical and electrical components.

The toy created can be based on an actual vehicle, on a vehicle from a book or film, or it can be a fantasy vehicle developed from the pupil's imagination.
