Ten80

Through class, club, and camp curriculum, complete with materials, training, and support, Ten80 invites middle and high school students to practice the art of being STEM professionals.

About

Ten80 Education™ produces standards-based STEM curricula and competitions, as well as a web-based Points Race that gamifies hands-on learning. Its three signature programs are the Ten80 Racing Challenge, Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Challenge, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Challenge. (The Ten80-NSBE STEM League does not currently include the UAV Challenge.)

Through class, club, and camp curriculum, complete with materials, training, and support, Ten80 invites middle and high school students to practice the art of being STEM professionals. Youth in schools and out-of-school settings, supported by a community of mentors and educators, collaborate and compete in ways that mirror engineers, technicians, green transportation designers, business executives, marketing specialists, and professional motorsports teams. To demonstrate their skills, teams across the U.S. and China gather to compete at local, regional, and national Face-to-Face events each year, and/or submit their work for the online Points Race.

In addition to the curriculum and competitions, Ten80 draws on decades of experience with students and educators to produce custom, event-based STEM experiences with industry association partners, designed to help launch youth into career pathways while promoting meaningful community engagement. Notable custom event sponsors have included the U.S. Army, SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association), NASCAR, SME (formerly Society of Manufacturing Engineers), NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers), America Makes, Lightning eMotors, and the Denver Broncos.

We envision a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color, and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. In this world, Blacks exceed parity in entering engineering fields, earning degrees, and succeeding professionally.
