    The Great Race Project 2008
    (Unfortunately, this wonderful project did not take place since the actual race, The Great Race of 2008, was cancelled. But there are many excellent resources and ideas on this wiki.)
    Please continue to visit this page as we develop a fully interdisciplinary, integrated, project-based, real world curriculum. Please allow your students to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a real-life, significant, historic event! (If the image from the video does not appear in the space below, just move your mouse over the space and click on it.)
    View this YouTube video about the Great Race of 1908 and the centenniel celebration, The Great Race of 2008. This soon to be released documentary is being created by Michael Hamm, Producer/Director and Kerrie Long Producer/Production Manager at Frame 30 Productions, Ltd., of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

    Professor of Physics
    Pete Border has a Ph.D. in particle physics, but lately he has been working on a combination of game design, education, and physics — which he finds really fun. Pete has taught the enormous freshman physics courses at the University of Minnesota many times and has taught at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design as an adjunct. He has been fascinated by computer games since finding “Adventure” on the campus mainframe in the late 1970s and has recently been involved in game programs at several schools in Minnesota. Dr Border will be providing guidance and suggestions for projects which connect physics and mathematics to The Great Race project, ranging from car design to video game design and physics in art!

    major networks. We will add a page to this wiki over the weekend which includes names and (when possible) addresses of people we'd like your students to write to. It will have a place where you can sign up to show how many letters your school is sending out, and to whom. Please also encourage other schools, in your district, or district friends/colleagues, or through ePals, to join us and do the same.
    Our project may have to be renamed as the campaign to Save the Great Race 2008 - New York City to Paris, or just The Global Students' Celebration of the Centennial of the Great Race 1908.
