Whatcha Makin'?  - 
 
I had created an article with general information about making projects for my physical science type of workshops. This includes where to find the materials at lower prices and the basic types of projects.

Below are mousetrap car kits I had made up.

Thanks, it is more of a challenge scrounging materials for a group project than for an individual project. For example I used the tiny motor and gear set in the defunct model helicopter in a small model solar car. Somebody gave me some small dc motors but not enough for a group project in model wind turbines.  But the foam often comes in large sections, not good if you only need some for a small project.
 
Great info! I'm going to share this link on my blog (eventually I move slowly sometimes).
