Open to all fourth-grade students working individually or in a team of up to four students, Challenge 2 is all about designing a vehicle — a vehicle of the future.
For this project, students will need to present a future vehicle of any size. Use the worksheet to identify three key features and describe the design and the layout of the vehicle. This can be done as an essay, presentation or 3D model.
The deadline to submit your project is January 3, 2023.
GEARING TOWARDS THE FUTURE
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math! Barrett-Jackson is partnering with SciTech Institute to bring you “Gearing Towards The Future” — a community, education and outreach initiative focused on STEM education.
Barrett-Jackson’s Gearing Towards The Future aims to encourage and develop future automotive engineers and technicians. The learning modules focus on teaching students how to solve problems and develop new skills using challenge-based projects related to automobiles.
This year’s projects include:
- Designing a vehicle for the future
- Designing, creating and building transportation of the future
- Designing, creating and building electrical components
Winners from the Gearing Towards The Future challenges will display their projects along with companies and organizations focused on STEM initiatives as part of a one-day event called STEM Fest during the 2023 Scottsdale Auction in January, where they will also receive their awards.
