Parks & Rec to host ‘Car Frenzy’
Deadline to register is Friday

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

The Franklin County Parks and Recreation is sponsoring a Pullback Car Frenzy for children in first through third grades, beginning July 7.

Students will become "mini-engineers" by designing new vehicles by utilizing pieces from supplied cars.

Over the course of the five-day class, students will participate in experiments to demonstrate science and engineering concepts and laws, such as gravity, potential energy and kinetic energy.

Students will also become familiar with the concepts of basic engineering principles, friction, forces, motion and aerodynamics, while brushing up on their problem solving, communication, teamwork and collaboration skills.

All students will be able to take home whatever they create during the week.

The event will take place Monday, July 7 through Friday, July 11 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Essig Recreation Center. The cost per child is $135.

Deadline to register is Friday, June 27.

For more information, contact Franklin County Parks and Recreation at (540) 483-9293.
