Ten80 STEM Team Seeks Your Support!

Help me give my students the STEM tools they need to be fully engaged in the Ten80 Racing Series.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions. They are especially fond of hands-on, minds-on projects where they can be fully engaged.

My students are an intelligent and inquisitive bunch that is always eager to learn and they are discovering a passion for STEM which this project will help nurture.

They always give their best when tackling new challenges.

Our school is a Title I school where many students are on free or reduced lunch. The socioeconomic reality means that it is difficult to ask the students to contribute materials to school projects. Most STEM projects in particular are out of their financial reach.

My Project

We introduced the Ten80 Challenge for our middle school students for the first time this year. We need to give our STEM students an opportunity to learn engineering concepts through first hand experience.

Data-driven design will be made possible with engineering notebooks to track revisions and batteries and other equipment to run trials.

This involves isolating variables and running trials to find the best vehicle configuration for a race. Many little pieces will lead to one successful program!

Trial and error can sometimes mean a lot of error but that's where the best learning happens. Spare parts will help us through those learning experiences. The scientific method, creativity, and teamwork will contribute to a successful engineering program. Go STEM.
