Leading the way to higher learning in physics, science, engineering--with mini race cars
The halls of the Perham Prairie Wind Middle School were transformed into a racetrack earlier this year.
The cars are powered by CO2 cartridges, and the students run them down the halls like a drag racetrack.
But the racing is only the finale of the educational project. Students also design and build the little contraptions--which are similar to the well-known Pinewood Derby cars created by Cub Scouts.
