James May from 'Top Gear' Backs 'Scalextric 4 Schools'

'Scalextric 4 Schools' is an incredible new curriculum for schools to get their students excited about auto engineering, and it's backed by James May of 'Top Gear.' Using toy-sized Scalextric cars on slot tracks, schools will compete to see whose designs are the fastest and most well-made.

'Scalextric 4 Schools' is more than just a race, however. To prepare, students will have to study car design and electric propulsion. They'll also have to master CAD software, laser cutters and CNC routers, according to Autoblog. Letting kids indulge their creativity through this program is a fantastic way to solve the lack of automotive engineers worldwide.
