Olathe Race Car Association (ORCA) is a student run radio control race car club. The
students maintain, repair, and set up the cars for racing. The set up requires physics,
geometry, mechanical problem-solving skills. The students work as a team in marketing.
They contact industry and market their cars that entails selling sponsorships to finance
their car. They paint and decal the cars to market their sponsors, modeled after
professional racing. The club has a professional scoring system that allows them to
track lap times and race position. This is a student activity with no cost to the student to
participate and is great for students that are not participating in traditional sports. ORCA
engages with industry and the public by running races at sponsor’s place of business
and community events.
LOW RIDER BIKE CLUB
The Olathe chapter of the Leadership Lowrider Bike Club was the first to be established
in 2017. Our mission is to help high school students find a sense of belonging and
support both socially and academically. This program allows students to receive weekly
mentoring, academic support, community service, and cultural identity development
through the Lowrider community, all while building custom bikes that they earn upon
high school graduation. Our club also restores bikes and donates them to the
community. Since the club’s inception, 375 bikes have been donated to the community
and over 1,400 elementary students have been supported through one to one
mentoring and all-school assemblies.
