Our FABcamp build this year is going to be a showstopper! We are building a driving simulator in a real car…or a portion of a car. We are converting a wrecked car into a driving sim work of art! We’ll fire up the welding torch and cut the car in half so only the driver’s seat, door, and front end are intact. Then we’ll customize it with a gaming steering wheel, pedal, gaming PC, curved monitor, and butt shaker so that it becomes the most unique driving simulator you’ve ever seen. This driving sim will be the spotlight when we attend the INDYCAR race at Portland International Raceway on September 4. This will be the focus of FABcamp 2022. This could also become the most fun way to learn how to drive!

Our intensive spring internship online program gives our members a community of like-minded, engineering-thinking, design-wielding creators. During our merit-based intensive studies, our participants will meet outstanding female STEM role models, and have new experiences outside of their bubble where they will learn a multitude of skills that will benefit them throughout life.
Club Athena is built upon the Athenian characteristics of Character, Confidence and Courage.
This is a GIRLS-ONLY STEM Education Club.
