Through a $300,000 grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation, middle school students from Cabarrus County, Kannapolis City, Richmond County, and Rowan-Salisbury Schools are taking part in the BioMoto STEM Challenge.  Students are getting a chance to look at science through fitness from a pit crew's perspective. The two-semester program is teaching students how to use STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics) skills to improve their mental and physical fitness in preparation for their own Pit Crew Challenge at the Rockingham Dragway, otherwise known as "THE ROCK."


This culminating event for the 2013-2014 BioMoto STEM Challenge features a Pit Crew Challenge and Invention Showdown (apparatus design competition).  A final schedule of events and registration details will be released closer to the date, so please check back.  


Students and parents will receive registration information directly from their schools.  Individuals and corporations interested in attending or assisting with the event should contact Susan Hinson at 704-687-8563 or
