Can you create a ramp that makes your Hot Wheels car fly with speed or make your car travel without touching it? In this camp you will engineer, design, crash and test all things Hot Wheels to prove the science of force and motion. #academic

Class experience

US Grade 4 - 7
The main STEM learning outcomes of the class are:
1) creative problem solving through engaging, exploring, questioning, explaining, elaborating and evaluating
2) persisting even when encountering an unexpected and difficult challenge (Growth Mindset)
3) recognizing opportunities for improving the design even after you think you're "done" 
4) using creativity and imagination to generate and extend a design beyond an initial idea
5) implement Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Standards for Mathematics 
As a mom, I have played with Hot Wheels throughout my kid's elementary years.  As a teacher, I have taught this unit of study to fourth grade students, and have adapted the curriculum to fit ages 3-9 years old as well.

No formal assessment however I give feedback from teacher observation during the class on how to improve their design.
