Currently students from Transportation, Information Systems, Family and Consumer Sciences, Engineering, and Art are involved in the creation of this build. This project will create a bond between academies as they strive to a common goal.

Phenomenal.That’s the word senior Justin Rivers used to describe his four years at Central Academy of Technology and Arts (CATA). He came to CATA from East Union Middle School and quickly made a name for himself as a promising student and actor.
Rat Rod...what is a rat rod? According to Wikipedia, “A rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early-1960s. The style is not to be confused with the somewhat closely related "traditional" hot rod, which is an accurate re-creation or period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era. Most rat rods appear "unfinished", regardless of their status, as only the vehicle's bare essentials are driven. These are built to drive, not exclusively for show.”
