The Opportunity of a Life Time



The workshop is designed to inspire middle school students to use Information Technology to learn about physics, engineering design, manufacturing, graphics, branding, leadership and teamwork, and apply them in an imaginative, competitive and exciting way.

In the past, our team placed 1st in New York State, 2nd in the New York Super Regionals, and ninth overall nationwide. All members of the Roosevelt Racers have 200+ hours of experience in their specialized fields. Students will have the choice to visit different classrooms/classes in relation to the field that they show interest. Here are some of the classes the Racers will teach, just to name a few:

- Computer aided design - CAD

- Computational fluid dynamic - CFD

- Computer aided manufacturing - CAM

- Non-profit creation/promotion

- Entrepreneurship and start-up conceptualization


After creating the car with your team, all teams will race against each other to compete for the fastest car with reaction racing. In addition, all students will be judged upon their marketing portfolio and social media actity/promotion. All teams will leave with a certificate of achievement, but only the top few teams will be able to leave with a trophy and a handshake from the principal of Eleanor Roosevelt High School.
