Students in the Fast Lane to Education

JUNE 6, 2006 -- The 2nd Annual "Fastar" Tournament was held Tuesday for the 1st through 5th graders at Roger Bacon Academy.

The children teamed up to compete against each other in a series of questions involving reading and arithmetic. But it wasn't all about academics, the kids had fun in the NASCAR style setting, racing against their peers to find the correct answers.

Organizers say the event is a way to keep learning fun for the children.
