Using the above Internet websites and any other materials to generate ideas, create a minimum of sixteen (16) thumbnail sketches. Use the chart on the reverse side to sketch your ideas.
Be sure to create 16 unique and totally different designs (not 1 version modified 15 times!)
Remember, thumbnail sketches are small, quick sketches without details. The goal is to get your ideas out of your head, and onto paper.
Wild is Wonderful!
Don’t think about how to build your dragster or what your friend is doing. Just imagine what a cool fast dragster would look like based on the engineering principles of mass, aerodynamics and friction. Brainstorm sixteen (16) ideas and sketch them in the boxes below.
