"Our school was buzzing with excitement after you guys left yesterday. Please let Clarity know we absolutely LOVED having her here! The students are still talking all about it today. Not only about the science but how personable she was to them." - Laura, Thomas Simpson Middle School, Flat Rock, Michigan

“She actually talked to us at our level, and she looked at us in the eyes when she talked to us. Some presenters just aren’t good with kids.” - Race Car Mobile Science Lab Student

“My goal is to encourage children to take an interest in science and engineering at an early age and open their eyes to the many wonderful careers available to them,” said Clarity. “A race car is a great tool for demonstrating scientific principles to students and engaging them in hands-on learning that can spark their interest in science-based career paths.” - Clarity Patton
