Updated:
Every school student has wondered how classroom lessons translate to real life. Thursday, students at Liberty Mounds got an answer as "Team Thunder" rolled into their school.

Two instructors-turned-drag racers introduced real world math, science and technology in the classroom, using a real world dragster.

The program also touches on drug use and bullying and ends with the start up of the 5,000 horse-power engine.
