Cooperative STEAM TEAM for Grades 3-6
Starts Thursday March 1 at 6 PM
through April 10 (no workshop the week of Spring Break)
Students in Grades 3-6 are introduced to math modeling through the excitement of racing. Small radio controlled cars engage kids while building deeper understanding of STEM and teamwork. We also dive into 'bot making, electronics, mechanics, and certifications on the 1:10 scale radio controlled cars used by competitive league teams.
National STEM League Competitive Team: Middle and High School Students
All students contribute to the team through race engineering, coding and automation, design and fabrication, graphic design, marketing, community outreach and data-driven design projects that ask students to follow their own interests (as long as they follow good investigation practices = GIP).
The base technology for Student Racing Challenge teams is a 1:10 scale electric radio-controlled (RC) car that can be setup in over 4 million ways before re-engineering a single part. The car can be completely modified using whatever tools are available to you. Redesign parts using SolidWorks 3-D CAD (or other CAD programs) and fabricate them using 3-D Printers, CNC machines, laser cutters, etc.
After certifying and competing in the racing challenge, our team will move on to drones, rovers, and biometric wearable tech.
Don't tell the kids on our Driving STEM team (they think it's just for fun), but this program can also boost addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, data collection, graphing, problem solving, decimals, fractions, time, measurement, estimation and more!
