This summer has been a busy time for World of Speed’s education programs. Our summer campers have been taking part in robotics challenges, simulator racing, making their own CO2 dragsters and much more! Campers also enjoyed field trips to Pat’s Acres go kart track for some racing fun, Woodburn Dragstrip for some exciting drag races, and Portland International Raceway to learn about the history of the track with a special behind-the-scenes tour. There are still a few slots left for our final summer camps, REGISTER today!
We also had our first high school two-week intensive workshop, Basic Electronics and Diagnostics, with Mt. Hood Community College instructor Jerry Lyons. A dozen high school students registered for this class. The program culminated with a timed competition during which students were challenged to work in teams to diagnose and fix several problems with electrical systems in an automobile. Congrats to our students – all of whom completed the challenge!
This fall we anticipate doubling the number of students in our Automotive Learning Center program in partnership with Clackamas Community College and local school districts. This program provides hands-on, under-the-hood experience for students, and allows them to earn community college and high school credits. Learn more about the program and how you can get involved.
