Middle school students build then race go-karts

>>students and laura mackenzie got behind the wheel and headed for the checkered flag.

This is the first ever go cart race at county middle school and the students are not only drivers they built the cars all races are part of the motor sports club, the club has been going on for the last 3 years while building a full-size car but they ran out of space so students asked to build go-karts the request to build one turned into 7 and teachers say it's a great way to teach science technology engineering and math also known as stem.

>>that was a cool thing these kids went out they raise all the money.

So they are really work on interpersonal skills talking to businesses trying to raise the money.

They worked on their math skills and they're doing all the calculations and they're laying out the chest they work on their hands on skills.

So is this really cool to bring all that stuff together.

>>organizers say they saved all the plans for building the cars to help other middle school students interested in starting a program.

The hope
