Go Baby Go

Program Type:

Calling all pit crews! Engineers needed! Join us for an exciting collaboration: Congressional Camp is teaming up with Go Baby Go to custom modify powered ride-on cars for little kids that experience limited mobility. Each pit crew will meet a family and learn about the unique needs of their little driver. Then the team will custom modify a toy Mercedes, Lightning McQueen, or Ferrari for the driver. You rewire the car’s electrical system, create a one-of-a-kind driver’s harness, and hack the accelerator and ignition. By the end of the week, the drivers will drive off in their very own car, donated free of charge to the family, and designed specifically for the needs of their child. Watch their faces as they zoom around and play in ways that weren’t possible before. Grow a connection with your pit crew, as well as your little driver. This camp will teach practical and cool engineering skills, as well as contributing in a real way to our community.
