FabCar is a project in which students fabricate most of the individual components of the vehicle. Some of the parts are provided, and students create what they need to make an electric car that can move around either with a remote control or autonomously. The basic car can be made in about one term of 70 minute periods meeting three to four times a week. This project is a good followup to the FoamJumper project.
