Recognized by the North Carolina Motorsports Association, the STEM program at Charlotte Motor Speedway offers students a fun and educational experience. Students will relate motorsports to core principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics by navigating through various hands-on stations. Upon completion of the stations, students are welcome to experience the 24 degree banking of Charlotte Motor Speedway by taking a tour van ride around the 1.5 mile NASCAR track!

SPEED & ACCELERATION
Come and explore the velocity of a moving car! Teams will clock and measure speeds at varying angles that correlate to our different race tracks.

REMOTE CONTROL CARS
Get ready to race! Teams will run a series of qualifying times and compete in races based upon the average they calculate.

WEIGHT & BALANCE
Students will form "pit crews" and work together as they learn about weight distribution. Pit crews will calculate pre-adjustment and post-adjustment weight.

TRACTION
Groups will use a set of cars to measure the degree of traction on multiple surfaces. They will form a hypothesis based on the angle the car will move.

FRICTION
Students will learn how friction plays an important role in motorsports. This station will focus on Newton's Laws of Motion.

WHEN: STEM Field Trips can be booked Monday - Friday. Each session will last approximately 3.5 hours
