Join us at the California Automobile Museum for our very first summer program; if you’ve got mini Gearheads in your life, the Kids & Kars 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.
Youth Basic Engine-learn how an engine works by taking apart a 1 cylinder Briggs & Stratton engine and learn how the different elements interact.
Automotive Design and Clay Modeling: learn how to design a model car out of clay, just the way major car manufacturers do it! This will include a model car to take home as a keepsake.
Muscle Car Workshop: learn about classic muscle cars that roared down the road in the 50s and 60s.
Electric Vehicles: learn about these “green machines” that are growing in popularity, their history, why they died out, and why they’re “charging” back into the spotlight!
Riding in Cars: you’ve been in classrooms all week, it’s time to go for a ride (note: this class can not be purchased “a la carte”, it is only available to students who register for all 5 classes.)
Ready to sign up? fill this form and mail it to us with your personal check or credit card information. Or, fill out our secure and convenient online form below!
Please fill out a separate form for each youth you wish to enroll; we will still put both registrations on one charge for your convenience.
