Professor Qwbli's & Newton's Road are getting your child ready for the 2018 Gutter Car Derby with Print My Ride! Through this amazing STEM program, your child will have a blast:

  • Learning about & executing the design cycle
    • Identifying Need or Problem to Solve
    • Collecting Data & research
    • Brainstorming
    • Prototyping
    • Testing & Evaluation
    • Improvements, Modifications & Feedback
    • Share
  • Designing their own gutter car via TinkerCad
  • 3D printing their own gutter car
  • Learning about and mastering oral presentation skills
  • and much more!

But Print My Ride is much more than learning about the design cycle or designing & printing a gutter car. It allows kids to dream, take chances, and create the things they imagine… these are the skills of entrepreneurs, innovators and change makers. 

Through the hands-on practical problem solving, interdisciplinary learning and the development of transferable skills, your child will imagine a world of boundless opportunities.
