Start your engines! Middle school students use their math skills to calculate force versus height at the Auto Club Speedway Mathematics and Science Day

How it Inspires Our Kids

More than 500 middle school students from eight San Bernardino County school districts were inspired to put their mathematics and science skills to use at the second Mathematics & Science Day at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana March 25, 2011.

The all day student event included math and science labs on speed, acceleration, mass, force, and friction. Students had an opportunity to hear and learn from:

  • Dave Rogers, crew chief of the No. 18 M&M's Sprint Cup Toyota Camry at Joe Gibbs Racing for driver Kyle Busch
  • Rutledge Wood, SPEEDTV personality and co-host of "Top Gear" on the History Channel
  • Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson and other cartoon characters.

Students also watched the movie "NASCAR: The IMAX Experience" to learn more about the history and science of NASCAR racing. The event was led by the Auto Club Speedway, the Alliance for Education and the Science, Environmental Education and Service Learning Programs.

Make it Happen –

We would love to get your students involved in the Mathematics and Science Day, and the many other STEM related events led by the Alliance for Education. Contact us here and we will work to inspire your students through hands-on learning opportunities!
