Tube Tunnel Car Race

A fun and interactive way to learn physics!

We found the long cardboard tube in our garage, so we played car racing! My son learned which type of cars run faster than others, and how the tube angle matters for the speed. We can learn friction and practice observation skills with fun!


What you need

  • Cardboard Shipping Tubes
  • Different shape / size / weight toy cars (or trains)

I bet in my son’s imagination, there was a heated car race like this image! Broom!
