Power up with rubber bands with State Library this National Science Week!

Rubber bands are safe and cheap. They store energy like a battery and are reusable for so many things.

Find out how by twisting, stretching, turning and even heating them – make things move at home.

A tabletop turtle that crawls along, a rubber powered racer and amazing flying things will make you a beginner engineer in minutes, and after you learn these basics, you’ll never throw a rubber band in the bin again.
