About Nitro-X

Nitro-X camps are designed for middle or high school students and are hosted by Minnesota State Colleges and Minnesota High Schools. This camp offers students the opportunity to explore careers in transportation through hands-on activities with radio controlled (RC) cars. This includes learning about how vehicles work, building their confidence with technical skills, working in teams to develop life and employability skills, gaining exposure to industry and showing off their RC skills with a race.

Exploring Careers

Students get the opportunity to learn about careers in transportation ranging from Automotive Technology, Auto Body and Collision Repair, Diesel, Heavy Equipment and Powersports by learning technical skills through hands-on activities and challenges throughout the week.

Painting
Car Bodies

Students work with industry professionals to prep and paint their RC car body using the same materials and techniques used in the auto body industry. The car bodies are personalized by students through the selection of paint color, design and decals. At the end of race day, campers take their car body home as a souvenir of their time at camp.

VIP Industry Tours

Students receive VIP tours of local businesses during camp to get a behind the scenes look at a career in transportation. Sites visited in the past include car dealerships, auto body shops, heavy equipment dealerships, and more!

Final
Race Day

After a week of learning new skills, technical information, meeting new friends and touring local businesses, students and their families are invited to participate in race day where students compete against each other to see who can master the race track.
