TRAINING & RACING EXPERIENCE
Is this an educational program, Is this a program of growth, Is this a program of building, Is this a sport, Is this a STEM/STEAM program? Be the judge! Please read the entire page.
Our "Training & Racing Experience" is the answer. The"Training & Racing Experience" is an 8-week curriculum course, and we will host (3) 8-week courses a year. Operators(children) will learn how to use physics & mathematics by calculating travel, speed, distance, time, gravity, and weight effortlessly while competing against one another to complete the driving course. Operators will drive, repair, and train with some of the most technologically advanced models to compete against each other but in a team environment. Operators will participate in some levels of reverse-engineering of the models when it comes to repairs, removing, and replacing the electronics and mechanical parts. The parts are fully replaceable, and upon breakage of a part or pieces, Operators and their teams are responsible for repairing their assigned models.
The teams will consist of 3-5 Operators and a Police Officer. Teams will work together every week during the 8-week program to make them smarter, wiser, confident, and more robust. Each racing event will have team members and multiple teams competing against each other. Officers will remain consistent throughout the 8-week program to establish and maintain the personal connection. So while an Operator is racing, he/she will always have a support team in their corner. This experience will be a complete learning experience for all who are involved.
Operators will excel and advance based on their ability to make the necessary but slight adjustments to the mechanics of their models to suit their operating style. Operators will accomplish this by building comfort, confidence, and knowledge. Additionally, It will be impossible for an Operator to complete a race without applying discipline, technique, and physics rules. Operators will have to apply these rules to adjust to the configurations & conditions of the course.
We will primarily paint the vehicles' bodies to replicate the topmost active 10-20 scaled real-life monster trucks currently racing in the Monster Jam circuit. Operators will learn about real-life trucks and their drivers. Each year will end with all participants taking a field trip to see the Monster Jam circuit in person when they perform every February. We cannot guarantee consistent victories for every Operator in our program. However, we can guarantee consistent losses for every Operator who do not apply the principles that we teach in our program.
* 8-week STEM/STEAM curriculum program
* Side-by-side bracket track racing for accumulated points
* We provide radio-controlled vehicles to the children
* All vehicles will be kept in stock condition to remain competitive
* Driver's error, experience, and technique will determine the winners
What will be learned, taught & acheived:
- Competing with respect & dignity
- Winning & losing with respect
- How to repair the vehicles if/when they require repairs
- Open communication that leads to detection of trauma
- An outlet to speak about violence and trauma
- Conflict resolution & Conflict mediation
- Social-emotional therapy
- Team building
- An escape from toxic environments
- Fun alternative to athletics
- Promote art
- Physics in a fun way
- Deterrent to being offenders or victims
- An alternative to engaging in mischeif
- Intervention to violence
- Loads of fun seamlessly being educated through STEM/STEAM
- and much more!
Remember the questions at the top of this page?..... And your answer is?
We will start the "Training & Racing Experience" once we have reached our financial goals to purchase the vehicles and other necessities. Our ultimate goal is to eventually have a facility where we can have children from all over the city and surrounding suburbs, accompanied by Police Officers from those respective areas to converge for racing and fellowship. With your help, we can reach this Training & Racing Experience, please share and support the gofundme campaign!
