What Resources Are Available to Help Me and My Students?

BASEA provides volunteer mentors that can meet with teachers and students at the participating schools to teach about the design process and assist in the use of tools to construct the cars.  BASEA also offers a teacher training workshop each spring.  Teachers who attend the workshop will receive the “starter” curriculum and other information, including easy- to-follow time lines and lists of tools that will assist with organizing the JSS in the classroom.  There will also be a hands-on period for participants to familiarize themselves with the design and construction aspects of the program, and ti me for all the questions first ti me rs might have.

Additional materials to assist teachers in developing a curriculum for their classrooms is available on the NREL website at
