Blended learning options give you the freedom to learn together or at home.  Materials are easy to source from toy bins and recyclables,
but Classroom and Camp kits are also available for purchase.

Students own a technology team and their ultimate goal is to engineer personal performance, team performance and of course, race performance. The base technology is a 1:16 scale electric radio-controlled (RC) car and the measurement tools needed for data driven decision-making.

The basic tools of data collection are easy to use and reinforce math skills:
build numeracy and basic skills
recognize patterns
measure elapsed time, length, weight, and distance
represent data on interactive graphs and charts
analyze data for problem-solving


    Federally funded research within a Safe Schools, Healthy Students program has proven that Driving STEM (Formerly named Math2Go) significantly and positively impacts school attendance, subject retention, and testing scores.
