Keep RC Engineering Going Strong

My students need more challenging kits to build like the Brat and Frog as well as electronics to keep their club going this year.

My Students

My students are in grades 5-8. They attend a rural school in Connecticut. Our school follows a STEAM approach which focuses on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.

This group of students created their own club last year and accomplished much by building RC cars as well as helping to create and run an extracurricular club.

My students are interested in engineering and have a special interest in remote control vehicles. Many of them take part in engineering classes and self select reading materials and other activities related to those topics. They have been especially active in the past year

My Project

Last year my students started an RC car club. They built several running cars and learned a lot about engineering and tool use along the way as well as practicing important skills like persistence and cooperation.

This year they would like to add to their garage by building new cars that represent a higher level of challenge.

The cars selected will be more challenging to build. Students will have to draw on their past experiences to build them and will encounter a new set of building challenges as they work with a significantly different platform, but apply the same basic tool skills developed in the previous year. In doing so they will sharpen and develop skills they previously learned as well as expand their knowledge about the subject.
