MisterRonbo: I don't get all the hate in this thread. Its just the lab portion of a physics class, and it relates science and math to something real world and cool. Maybe you enjoy that tradition of engineers and scientists often being people who had poor social skills when young, it wouldn't hurt to make it a path bright but not awkward kids want to pursue.Also, its one of the few physical activities where the small kids actually have an advantage, so that's a nice little bonus.
AverageAmericanGuy: All our high achieving math students, 8, 9 and 10th grades have been rewarded for their achievement with a day at the trackSo the rich white kids get to go race cars and the poor kids with bad home lives can go pound sand.Sounds about right.
