STEM: On The Go
Coming soon to a school near you. Let Charlotte Motor Speedway's mobile STEM program come to you! Your day will include classroom enrichment visits (grades 2-4) filled with hands-on activities and demonstrations with Charlotte Motor Speedway Educators!
Charlotte Motor Speedway educators are available to visit your school to engage students about STEM topics and lead a hands-on activity or demonstration. These visits are aligned to NC Essential Standards and can be tailored to fit your grade-level needs. Specific activities may vary depending on grade level.
- Build It! : Students will get into teams of 4-5 and form their own Pit Crew. Students will be given supplies such as cardboard, straws, magnets, balloons, string and paper to create the fastest car.
- Move It! : Teams will carry on to the next stage to test their cars and make any adjustments before the showdown begins.
- Race It! : Teams will then stage their cars and race down ramps at varying angles simulating our SMI tracks.
We also can provide afterschool enrichment visits. Our Classroom Enrichment Visits can be adapted for afterschool groups that include several different grade levels! These afterschool sessions are a fun way to provide STEM enrichment to your program.
