Join us at the California Automobile Museum for our very first summer program; if you’ve got mini Gearheads in your life, the Kids & Cars Summer Program is just the place for them.
These classes are open to youth who are incoming 5th-9th graders; our expert volunteer instructors will be on hand at all time to supervise, and the museum staff will also be available.
In the “Exploring Engines” class students will learn about the inner workings of modern combustible engines and how they have evolved over time.
“Horsepower meets Muscle Cars” will help students explore the history and design concepts of popular american made automobiles from the 60’s and 70’s.
“Designing an Automobile” will introduce students to some of the basic concepts and theories behind how a car transforms from an idea to reality.
“Alternative Fuels and Electric Vehicles” will show students how cars can be powered by means other than traditional fossil fuels.
“Pinewood Derby Meets Gravity Racers” will provide an opportunity for students to observe how Physics can be use to mold a block of wood into the ultimate derby racer.
This class is now full! However, we are exploring the option of either expanding the capacity of this class, or adding a second camp later in the summer. If you want to be on our waiting list, please fill out the form below. Thanks!!
