Barberton Middle School students in Stacy Latham’s eighth grade STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) class made and races dragsters.
They learned about aerodynamics, drag racing and more. The students researched effective dragster styles and sketched their dream dragsters.
They built their cars out of blocks of wood and carved them out with a band saw, sander and a drill press. Then the students painted their cars and raced them in the hallway.
