STEAM: Daily Program
Recognized by the North Carolina Motorsports Association, our daily STEAM program at Charlotte Motor Speedway offers student groups a fun and educational experience like no other. Students will relate motorsports to core principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Force, motion, energy and engineering are some of the topics that come alive as kids navigate through hands-on stations. Grip and slip demonstrates how traction and friction play an important role at the track while speed and acceleration lets kids explore the velocity of a moving car at varying angles. Critical thinking skills will be put to the test as students form a hypothesis and understand racing design concepts.
Upon completion of the stations, students are welcome to experience the 24-degree banking of Charlotte Motor Speedway by riding around the 1.5-mile NASCAR track in a tour van!
