Featured Listing

Open to 10th grade students working individually or as a team of up to six, Challenge 4 focuses on designing and building a working prototype of an electrical component for any vehicle of any size for the future of transportation.

Participants can use this worksheet to craft an essay, presentation, design drawings, 3D model or prototype, identifying three key features of the component as well as the design and layout of the component.

The deadline to submit your project is January 3, 2023.



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.
