Hot Hares and Retro Racers, two teams of young engineers from Chicago’s Gage Park High School, won 1st and 3rd place against 11 teams in the citywide Ten80 Racing Challenge. Now, they need to raise $5,000 to prepare for and travel to Houston to compete against teams from all over the country.
“Explore Engineering:Ten80″ is a yearlong after-school program that pairs Project Exploration’s Youth-Science model with Ten80 Education’s nationwide National STEM League. Focusing on the principles of race car engineering, the program gives teams a chance to design their own model cars, and develop an entrepreneurial marketing strategy. This program is made possible through a grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation. Major program support is provided from community partner Southwest Organizing Project.
