Galileo Summer Camp / Summer Quest Go-Kart Building Showcase

On the last day of camp at Galileo Summer Quest, my daughter got to test her finished go kart.

The weather was beautiful as the go kart drivers revved their engines (yes, the instructor really had the kids make engine noises). Then it was my daughter’s turn – whee!

Before we put her go kart in the car and headed home, she wanted me to take a ride in it. I did but I’ll spare you that sad sight…

Love how the Go-Kart turned out!

Isn’t it cute? The back section of the seat has a moon on one side and a sun on the other 🙂

Henrietta June 27, 2012 - 9:34 am

Oh how fun! Her go kart looks amazing!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 3:47 pm

Thanks. We are so proud of her. She said the green splatters are grass.

That is so cool and I love that she built it. Fun!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 3:50 pm

I know. Just knowing that makes it so much more interesting. She was really into it!

HOW FUN!! I love the look of that cart!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 3:50 pm

I’ll definitely let her know – the colors and wheel design were her idea!

Tammy June 27, 2012 - 1:21 pm

I’m so glad to see a girl doing that.

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 3:51 pm

Me too. I was surprised that about 40% of the class were girls as well as a couple teacher assistants! It was a great mix!

that looks fun, I’ve never been to one.

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 3:52 pm

Me neither. It was a wonderful opportunity that my daughter could attend as part of a blog review!

Danielle @ Royalegacy June 27, 2012 - 2:40 pm

That looks like loads of fun!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 3:53 pm

It was a blast until I bent the wheel 😛 Now we have to fix it, hehe.

Carolyn G June 27, 2012 - 3:41 pm

How cool!!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 5:02 pm

I’m really happy that she chose this course – it’s really the best project she came home with to date!

Jenn @therebelchick June 27, 2012 - 4:02 pm

Looks like fun!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:14 pm

Well, we haven’t had a chance to take it for a REAL spin yet. Maybe that’s what we’ll do this weekend 🙂

Rachel June 27, 2012 - 4:24 pm

She built a great cart – and I’m a little bummed there’s no photos of you driving that racer!! 🙂

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:15 pm

Hehe, it was extremely goofy with my hips squished in the seat and my daughter pushing me 😛

Billie June 27, 2012 - 4:48 pm

Oh how fun. She built a great go-cart!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:17 pm

Thanks – she really did do a fantastic job 🙂

Katie June 27, 2012 - 7:56 pm

that looks like a blast!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:17 pm

Yes, she LOVED it! I like that she is also more comfortable with using power tools!

jen June 27, 2012 - 8:25 pm

I wanna see you in the cart mom!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:18 pm

No, you don’t…you really don’t 😛 After the wheel bent I kind of vowed not to go in it anymore…

Onica {MommyFactor} June 28, 2012 - 3:01 am

Kudos to your daughter for making an awesome cart. I doubt I could have built something like that much less make it work

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:19 pm

If you were in that class, yours would turn out just as good! Great staff and all the tools there you need – easy peasy!

BusyWorkingMama June 28, 2012 - 4:03 am

That looks like fun! Your daughter did a great job on the car!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:20 pm

Thanks – we’re really proud of her for doing most of it herself!

Anne June 28, 2012 - 5:05 am

This looks like an amazing camp, love the car!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:21 pm

It’s such a cool camp! Last year she did ‘chefology’ to cook and other major include video game design, fashion studio, Lego robotics, and cartooning. I love the options they have!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell June 28, 2012 - 9:27 am

LOL! I wanna see you in that cart. It’s really cool!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:22 pm

Maybe one day…but I fear you may use it against me 😛

Kelly @ Texas Type A Mom June 28, 2012 - 2:19 pm

How fun! I can’t believe how green it is there!

TerriAnn June 30, 2012 - 6:22 pm

Well, the field itself was astroturf 😛 Still looked cool though!

Kathy July 1, 2012 - 3:31 pm

That looks like a lot of fun!

Amanda July 2, 2012 - 4:26 pm

Lol, looks like she had a great time!
