Lets explore the world of automotive engineering and mechanical engineering as we learn how to make an electric powered vehicle. This resource card shows you how to design and make your very own electric vehicle using this simple step by step guide.


We want to encourage all children to explore and experiment. To become confident with designing and making products using their knowledge of Science, Design and Technology, Engineering and Maths. All projects are aligned with learning objectives across the STEM subjects. The resource card includes pictorial instructions, explaining how to design and make an electric powered vehicle using a wheel and axel and a simple pulley system. This project can also be modified to include two motors.

Suitable for ages 8 – 11
