The Ten80 STEM Initiative™ is a supplemental STEM curriculum of Ten80 Education’s National STEM League. Students in grades 6 – 12 form Ten80 Student Racing Challenge teams that use model (1:10 scale) radio--controlled cars and mimic professional motorsport teams. The first weeks of engagement are spent learning how systems operate and how to organize data, rather than following "build" directions. After being "certified" in mechanical systems, data and problem solving students spend the duration of the program year rebuilding the car with improved parts. Once students master the fundamentals of problem solving, data and mechanical systems, they specialize in areas of personal interest, to include project management, marketing and business. The curriculum specifically addresses Enterprise and Data-Driven Design projects. NSBE’s Ten80 STEM Initiative finals take place at the Annual Convention.
