Motorsports are often viewed in the public eye as a dangerous, boring, and wasteful sport that provides little benefit to society. In an era where the United States leads in innovation but is behind in Math and Science test scores, new ideas and methods need to be introduced. This senior capstone research project examines how Motorsports could serve as a theme for teaching Science, Technology, Math, Engineering (STEM) subjects. The STEM Education platform provides a new way of thinking for students who need something different in order to learn. This project explores the relationship between the exciting world of Motorsports and STEM subjects with surprising results. The results reveal that themes such as Motorsports can be used as an avenue to incorporate STEM in the classrooms.
