Explore the business and marketing of racing
About the Class
Getting to the Starting Line
It takes funding, engineering and talented team members to get the race car to the start line each week. Students will explore the business of racing through marketing and sponsorships. Students will participate in a game-based challenge to answer questions to earn funds to build and race their car. But, there may be changes to rules along the way that can impact the student’s success. This program provides an opportunity for STEM to meet business.
