Here are a few videos that we reviewed in class to reinforce this method.

Test Toy Cars

The students used rubber bands to generate different amounts of energy. They started by predicting which number of rubber bands would make the car move the fastest, second fastest, and slowest. They tested their predictions. We found that using 3 rubber bands with the toy car made it move the fastest.
