Making a jet propelled cable car

Today we made a jet propelled cable car. We made these 3D nets first which were: a Rectangular Prism and a Triangular Prism. From there we had thread some fishing line through a straw, stick the cable car roof to the straw and then stick the base of the cable car to a blown up balloon. On the count of five we had to let go of the balloon and watch the cable car travel at great speeds. It was great fun and the cable car went as far as 8 metres. Check out our photographs of this experience.
