Design a Vehicle

Summer Fun design materials

Onsite in the Museum or online you can discover the story of motoring from its origins with the Benz Motorwagen right up to a modern day Tesla, and how developments in vehicles led to touring holidays in caravans and motorhomes. But where does it go from here? Your challenge is to design a vehicle, caravan or motorhome of the future!

Things you could think about…

  • What do you think you will be driving, or what would you like to be driving?
  • Will it travel on the road?
  • Will it use petrol, or electricity, or another type of fuel?
  • How many passengers will it carry?
  • Will everyone own their own or will you be able to rent a vehicle when you need it?
  • Will it be made from new or recycled materials?

Use what you have in your recycling at home to build a vehicle, caravan or motorhome of the future!

You could use… Milk bottle lids, cardboard boxes, milk bottles, paper and plastic bottles.

You will need… scissors, tape, glue plus paint to decorate your vehicle or caravan.
