The program builds on the 80-year successful legacy of the International Soap Box Derby and better prepares students for life and work in a world of massive and disruptive technological opportunities. The program engages students in critical STEM skills, including computer science and computational thinking principles. Additionally, it helps harness a willingness and desire to work and learn in problem-based settings with heavy reliance on experimentation.
The video shows our first prototype taking a test drive down Derby Downs. This test drive provided valuable information needed to make further adjustments to this prototype.
