Race Autonomous Cars

Program and race autonomous cars around a track. Which team will set the fastest lap?

This is an "in school" event where we come to your school with programmable autonomous cars and a race track.

Race Autonomous Cars

Your students are split into teams and we teach them how to program the cars to follow the lines around the track. Each team get test runs where they can try and improve the code so that their car will go faster without crashing off the track.

Then we pit the teams against each other in a series of races to find the team with the fastest car. As well as learning how to program the car, students practice teamwork, creativity and innovation by working together to incrementally improve their car.

What your students learn

  • An introduction to coding
  • Micro computers
  • How an autonomous car works
  • How to use sensors to follow a track
