    ORCA
    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.
