STEM @ Charlotte Motor Speedway

We participated in Charlotte Motor Speedway's STEM program this past January 2019 and found it to be one of our favorite educational opportunities in the area. The teachers were well prepared with their lessons, very organized, and knowledgeable. This is not a simple nor a superficial tour of CMS, rather a very educational, academic, and very fun field trip for students to explore the STEM possibilities in the auto racing industry. Classes included acceleration, weight & balance, traction, RC cars, and friction. These were a mix of math, science, and fun hands-on activities. Our homeschool students ranged from K to 9th grade and the teachers had no problem getting their attention and encourage discussion and participation. Thank you CMS STEM teachers!
