NASCAR-Themed STEM Lessons

NASCAR and National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) have teamed up to provide engaging and relevant content and activities for teaching science and STEM. The NASCAR Kids program is designed to help youth learn about the world of NASCAR through unique science, technology, and innovation-inspired content. NASCAR-themed lessons, a Track Guide, videos, and other resources are available free of charge to educators nationwide. They can tap lessons for elementary and middle school students such as “How Do Things Make Sound?” (K–2) “Why Do NASCAR Drivers Need to React Fast?” (3–5), and “How Do Roof Flaps Make a Racecar Safer?” (6–8). Students can explore the science behind drafting, drag, and aerodynamics through videos, and they can design and drive their own racecar while learning about aerodynamics and engineering in a one-of-a-kind simulation. The STEM at the Track resource guide for K–12 teachers features engaging science lessons and activities to do at the racetrack.
