LGSx Racer Clinics and Soap Box Derby Community Races
The primary goal of the Let’s Grow STEAMx racer clinics and community derby is to provide exciting educational experiences for youth participants in informal settings which offers lasting, positive, and meaningful impact on their future outcomes. Our STEAMx experiences are committed to utilizing every opportunity to help develop our participants positive character traits, connection to community and IGNITE their love for lifelong learning as they engage in fun and educationally based activities. Participants will also be taught lessons about sportsmanship and self-confidence as we provide them with the thrill of competing in a racer they build themselves.
Let’s Grow STEAMx believes one of the best things about derby racing – it’s a family affair! You will see single parents, grandparents, community surrogate parents, and traditional families all supporting their youth racer. Community derbies are a great connector for students and parents alike; helping to make new friends that last beyond their racing careers. Let’s Grow STEAMx believes ALL children are equal when racing down a racetrack, no matter what their limitations may be.
In an effort to stay true to our intention of providing access to ALL students at no cost, our derby clinics are open to any student Pre-K thru 12 grade who desire to participate. However, nominal fees are required for community derby rallies and races. Students may apply for sponsorship or scholarship for rally and race fees through our program.
