Self Propelled Car Ideas?
For my engineering class we have to build a self proppelled 'vehicle' but preferably a car.
I have thought of
CO2 Canister- Not allowed by instructor
Rubberbands- No originality
Mouse Trap/Rat Trap- Don't know how this would work
If you know of any way I can make the car self propel itself, it would be greatly appreciated, and I just need to know how to power the car, NOT every material needed, If tge way to propel the car affects the body, then describe that too.

Make the road or track a magnet.
Put another magnet on the back of the car. Let go and watch it drive.
Is a motor allowed at all? Radio shack electric motor with a fan. Fan blows wind to propel car. Car needs to be extrememly light.

You should be able to get a small scale solar motor and a panel. I had a motor that would turn a propeller and it ran off a 1" X 1" solar panel.
