About the Class

STEM Through NASCAR

Schedule as a four-hour, PBL session with prework activities. Students will work in small groups on real-world, NASCAR-inspired problems. Each problem will focus on STEM in NASCAR, such as improving speed when rules reduce downforce. During the visit to the Hall, students will have hands-on materials and supplementary resources including interviews or data to help them create their solution for the problem. Stations will be available through the Hall for students to utilize as part of their solutions. The day will conclude with each group presenting their problem and solution to industry professionals.
