Welcome to the STEAM Race Car Challenge hosted by Sonoma Raceway, Kid Scoop News and Friedman's Home Improvement! We invite you to read, explore and learn about STEAM lessons related to racing. We created this Family Guide to pilot your learning and engage students in a remote-learning setting. Printable PDFs are available below, both as a complete guide or lesson-by-lesson.
