Welcome to the NASA "Why?" Files project! 

Have you ever wondered how math, science and technology are really used in everyday life? Well, the NASA "Why?" Files hope to show you how and help you learn along the way. 

We went to Virginia Tech and interviewed college students working on the BAJA cart team. 

Guess what, you get to see how they use math, science and technology in making their cart fly through the air (and mud)! 



We want to give you some cool examples why it is worth studying all this stuff!
