1  Create a simple square using your wooden icecream sticks, making sure that you overlap the corners for strength. Secure strongly with sticky tape. 
2  Using scissors, cut your straw into 4 small pieces and secure these nearby the corners of the square you created. Make sure that there is at least 20 mm of distance from the end of the square edges so that your axle can have it’s rubber band fitted more easily. Thread the two kebab sticks through the straws as shown below.

This science experiment applies multiple ideas in classical physics, all in one fun little STEM challenge!
1. Firstly by pulling back the rubber band racer you stretch the rubber band, there by storing energy (also known as potential energy).
