Make it, race it!

Will your car go farther, faster, and straighter, or have the greatest stunt crash in history?


Students are immersed in designing, building, and testing their very own racing vehicle while getting an introduction to design thinking and woodshop tools.

Students learn to iterate their work as they revise and modify their car design from incorporating wind power to crazy obstacles and added auto bling.

Goethe & FOGS S.T.E.A.M committee have partnered with Bit Space, to bring a "Maker Lab" to the school. This unique opportunity gives kids exposure and helps develop our teachers in maker education - learning by doing. If there is a strong demand for this program Goethe is prepared to add more days and teachers to the program.


Who is BitSpace? Is leading the world of Maker Education. After years of offering programs at two youth-only Maker Spaces in Chicago and over 100+ school we know how to unlock the creativity children are naturally programmed to express. The after school programs they offer are insanely fun applying our customized Design Thinking and Maker Mindset approach to help

kids be producers — not just consumers —of the cool things around them.


Be warned: the creativity, excitement, and curiosity these courses trigger

will change the way your children think.
