As a new elective this year, students ranging from 5th to 8th grade are finding out there’s a lot more to cars than simply pressing on the gas pedal and going! So far they have researched and created posters about various automobile manufacturers from around the world, learned about the rise of the US automobile industry, and begun honing their drive skills with a driving simulator (including a fully functional steering wheel, shifter, and pedals!).

Their latest project is working in groups to paint and assemble model cars, made up of a few hundred parts each. Using the instructions provided, students learn what each part of the car is, what color it needs to be painted, and how it fits in with the car as a whole. While the majority of the students have never worked on a model like this, they are greatly enjoying it and look forward to our ‘model’ days!
