The Build Smart EV Micro-Kart Short Course Curriculum puts your students in the driver’s seat as they build and code their own electric go-karts. The curriculum walks you through each step so you can enjoy the experience alongside your students. It teaches students about the Engineering Design Process through hands-on, project-based learning.
Using the 5E lesson plan format (Engage, Explore, Explain, Engineer, Evaluate), students work through a series of activities that leads them to the creation of a fully functioning electric kart. The course implements standards from ISTE, NGSS, CCSS, STEL, and CSTA. The short course can be used for:
Introductory units on environmental and mechanical engineering
Out-of-school STEM-based activities (4H, Boys and Girls Club, etc.)
