Next week is British Science Week and we are going to be using the text 'Taylor Turbochaser' to inspire some science experiments.

 

At the story's heart is the unforgettable Amy Taylor. Amy loves cars, and dreams of being a driver. But there's a major catch: her slow old wheelchair with its broken wheel. When Amy finally gets a new electric one, it's exciting... at first. But standard engines only have so much power. And that's where Rahul comes in - Amy's best friend and genius inventor. Soon Rahul turns a wheelchair into... a supercar! And so the Taylor TurboChaser is born.

 

Your task is to create your own design of THE COOLEST WHEELCHAIR ever!!! Draw and colour a design of the wheelchair and label it with the cool features you've added.

Your design does not have to be completed until Wednesday 18th March so make it great :)
