RC Engineering STEM Camp

Join us this summer in the driver’s seat for intense fender-to-fender, high-flying off-road action where you will retrofit an RC car to improve drive time. Campers will engage in sustainability and learn how modifications, including tires and solar charging can impact the performance of a vehicle. At the end of the week you will race your modified car and the best performer wins! Each camper will be allowed to take home their RC car and equipment.

Your build awaits – space is limited!
