A project-based learning program that challenges middle and high school students in and out of schools to optimize the performance of 1:10 scale radio controlled cars. Students mirror professional motorsports teams, specializing in projects from creative engineering and green transportation to business and graphic design. Ten80 has been shown to boost student test scores and spark their interest in math and science.
16 teams from all over the U.S. met at Stewart-Haas Racing for a head-to-head academic competition. They competed in engineering projects, 1:10 scale RC car races (only well-engineered cars can perform well...only teams with a well thought out strategy will win) and enterprise & innovation categories.
