Elementary, middle school students to study math, science at FHSU through racing cars

The first of two four-day camps to help school children learn math and science through remote-control car racing begins Monday, June 14, for 20 students in grades three through five in Rarick Hall, room 201, on the Fort Hays State University campus.

Another camp, for students in grades six through eight, begins June 21.

In the Fast Track Science Camp, students will analyze data from the remote-control racing cars in an effort to make the cars faster. Team-based driving challenges will demand a real process of science using the real-world application of math. The camps are designed to build teamwork and increase the ability to perform math and science.

The action each day of the camps runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
