This four-month after-school program is conducted at our facility at the Washington Warren Airport from 4:00 P.M. to 5:30 PM, twice per week. The program will have 38 student contact hours. Our after-school curriculum is built around the Pitsco vehicle engineering/CAD software package. In this program, the students design and create vehicle parts using a 3-D printer, and then construct an electric vehicle using these parts. The students will utilize a wind tunnel to test drag. The curriculum has been peer-reviewed and designed by engineers for 6th-8th-grade students. The curriculum includes an option for the students to assemble and test drive an electric-powered race car.
