That is EXACTLY what we need to do to raise awareness of our club and go-karting in general. I wonder if Chip could put together a packaged curriculum that can we can use for our club? I would be glad to take a day off to do that at a local school.

I would LOVE to teach younger kids math and science. I still do it as a part of elementary career day. I believe I could make it interesting as the Robinsons did: by SHOWING

Much of my basic understanding of math and mechanics came fro go karting: gear ratios, mixing ratios, caster/camber etc.

VISUAL/HANDS ON learning has always worked best for me and I believe it works well for others. That is how we train physicians! c
