Roads, Rails, and Race Cars (RRRC) is an after-school program with an educational focus on engineering, transportation, and infrastructure. The curriculum was developed by faculty from UNL College of Education and Human Sciences, MATC staff, teachers, and student mentors. UNPS was one of the partner schools that hosted the after-school program


Some of the lessons included constructing bridges and conducting strength tests, creating bridges and towers that can withstand simulated earthquakes and floods, and building race cars powered by potential energy stored in a rubber band
