Sponsored by STEM Education Works, The Racing Through STEM workshop will provide educators with a unique opportunity to design and build a working scale model go kart. Starting with the chassis design, teachers will utilize engineering tolerances and design and then discuss explicit connections to CAD programming and 3D printing. Following chassis completion, attendees will integrate the fundamental mechanical systems to power the kart and explore various gear ratios and the implications on torque and speed. Finally, attendees will use a microcontroller and breadboard to automate and control motor speed and further improve the functionality of their kart. All attendees will receive supplies to build their own fully functioning EV Micro-Kart, ideas for immediate classroom application, and access to the expanded curriculum (100s of related resources) from STEM Education Works.
