Vehicles can be fueled by wind, corn, electricity…and fungi? TeacherGeek Yeast Mobile vehicles are an incredible bio-engineering activity, harnessing the power of yeast (pressurized carbon dioxide) to move, travel and race. Watch as mechanical advantage is transferred through linkages, gears and other mechanisms - it really works! After kids construct their unique mobile, they can easily turn them into rubber band racers or other STEM | STEAM contraptions. The design possibilities are endless. Yeast mobiles help students reach higher cognitive domains through the engineering & design process or turn a weekend into a maker's paradise with this kitchen table project. Excellent for budding elementary, middle and high school engineers. Students need TeacherGeek tool sets to build their vehicles. Documents available for grades 6-8, 9-12.
