Event Type: Science,Engineering and Math
Age Group(s): Teens (12-18), Preteen (10-11)
Date: 11/16/2019
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 2:00 PM
 The engine is the heart of a race car; its performance is a critical aspect of a team's success on any given race day. During this science and engineering-focused class, students will learn how combustion and friction rev up race engines. They'll explore the way chemical compositions, viscosity and the effective use of power maximize the work within an engine. Students will conduct an experiment, during which they'll see firsthand how chemical reactions transform energy and energy makes it possible to race a car.
Lunch will be provided.
