Teams from Stokes County students will be among more than 70 from throughout the state slated to compete on April 23 in downtown Lenoir as part of the sixth annual NC Gravity Games, a STEM-education racing extravaganza sponsored by Google and Appalachian State University.

The teams hail from Stokes Early College High School under the guidance of Sayrd Price. To get in touch with the team, please contact Billy Warden (919.412.0630) or Greg Behr (919.272.5621).

The Gravity Games is a real-world experience in which students from across the state use STEM lessons (science, technology, engineering and math) to build and race their own gravity-powered cars in downtown Lenoir, NC, home to Google’s data center. The checkered flag flies on April 23; the deadline for registration is April 11.

Prizes include bragging rights, tech goodies, medals and trophies — plus the pride in being recognized as STEM superstars.

A signature event of the NC Science Festival, the Gravity Games will also feature mind-expanding exhibits in a ‘science row,’ including hands-on exhibits from co-sponsor Appalachian State University as well as the Catawba Science Center, Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, UNC Neuroscience Center, and The Engineering Place @ N.C. State.
