Teams use creativity and ingenuity to build solar and recycled cars in preparation for an exciting, single-elimination tournament. Along the way teams prepare “solar car kits” for a local school to learn in a hands-on manner, each with a hand-written “STEM Message of Encouragement”

At the Go Green Racing corporate charity program, teams will be tasked with creating solar cars from kits provided and building cars from materials used and thrown away every day by millions of Americans. The solar cars will be put to the test and judged for performance, while the recycled cars will be built for speed! The charity team building event concludes with a round robin drag race tournament to determine which car is the fastest! Teams are racing against the clock to complete both cars and take home the checkered flag. Although many statistics regarding global warming and the environment forecast dire times in the future, there are many reasons to be optimistic. With a little help from each of us, we can change this predicament!
Our facilitators deliver a charity team building event that showcases the importance of recycling, alternative energy, and green transportation. The goal of the corporate charity program is to make a worthy donation to a local school. Although there will be a “winner” of the team building activity based on performance during the 2-hour program, the real winner is unveiled at the end of the activity when the group finds out that the solar cars, along with brand new solar car kits and a solar classroom curriculum will be donated to a local school. These cars and new car kits will be used by the school to further emphasize the importance of energy conservation and alternative methods of transportation as well as foster creativity and innovation within the classroom!
Rave Reviews From Clients
Go Green Racing event was a huge success. The employees loved it and more importantly my very demanding client loved it as well.
People loved the building and racing, and especially the community giving aspect of the Go Green Racing program. I also want to reiterate what a great job we feel Bradley did for us from start to finish. His work making the logistics as smooth as possible was superb, and he was a great facilitator with an easy, agreeable manner. I appreciated his flexibility both in the pre-work and on the fly. Thanks again
The Go Green Racing Teams “built” and raced solar powered racers and cars made from recycled goods like water bottles and animal cracker boxes, competing in round-robin competitions. These initiatives emphasize the importance of energy conservation and alternative methods of transportation. Two recent Leadership Orlando Class 75 graduates from the Schenck Company and Daytona International Speedway discussed the importance of Going Green and Giving Back through corporate philanthropy.n our team bonding exercise, our team members trusted each other to make decisions, such as, negotiating a strategic partnership with one of the other teams to trade materials and sharing a creative solution with another team that had assisted us with some of our construction challenges
The feedback has been nothing but positive. I received several unsolicited comments from many people who could not say enough great things about the program and the facilitators. It was definitely a success!
Amazing! The event was a HUGE success! Everything was perfect – the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can’t say enough about how well it went. The word is already flying around the office about the success of the program and we already have another group thinking about using this program for an event of their own!
We had a great time and I received a lot of positive feedback from the team. They were surprised, had fun and enjoyed participating in multiple activities. Michael was amazing!
