Inspiring the Next Generation of Innovators
NASCAR Hall of Fame Education Workshops align with the country’s focus on providing academic programs to children who may not be able to receive them otherwise. These STE(A)M education workshops are providing students insights into skills and jobs that define and promote workforce pipeline fulfillment. It is estimated that there are more than 40,000,000 people living in poverty in the United States, many of them are at-risk children. These vulnerable children are living in circumstances with barriers beyond their control. Research demonstrates that broad access to education opportunities removes barriers to workforce skills and economic success.
There are more than 50,000 economically disadvantaged students in Charlotte Mecklenburg County Schools and nearly 140,000 in our seven-county N.C. Metropolitan Statistical Area. Most do not have the means to enjoy an education field trip to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Access to NASCAR Hall of Fame education programs and resources has been limited for schools and families facing economic challenges. Additional funding support will offset admission and access to virtual learning programs for students who need it most.
