Build a working cable car out of a recycled soda can!

Detailed step-by-step instructions allow you to easily construct the motor and perfectly align the pulleys.

Finish off the last sip of that soda you've been drinking, wash it clean, decorate it with the stickers, and attach it to the clamps.

Now you're ready to roll!

Using the cable stops, attach one end of the string onto your wall up high and the other end across the room down low.

Switch on the motor, sit back, and watch as it rolls its way along the string back and forth!

When the car reaches the end of its string, the wall pushes its reversing shaft, switching the motor into reverse and sending it back down the string.

Build, learn about mechanics, and discover the power of recycling with the 4M Tin Can Cable car.
