Maker Space: Slow It Down

Your cart is racing down a steep slope... how can you stop it from crashing? Design a cart that can slow down and stop before it reaches the end of the track. Test it by setting the cart at the top of a ramp and letting go. Consider the forces acting on the cart and the properties of the different materials. Modify the challenge by changing the surface of the track or the angle of the ramp.
