Have you ever seen CO2 dragsters racing across a tile floor being guided by a string?  The sight is amazing to behold.

On October 22 and 23, Mr. Nielson’s physics classes raced their C02 cars.  Two cars race each other using a machine and CO2 cartridges to push them.  A string connects the cars to the machine and guides the cars in a straight line.  The machine measures the speed of both cars.  The winner gets extra credit for having an amazing car.
