Speed and Direction give you Velocity.
Velocity → Racing Excitement
Racing Excitement → A New Way to Learn
Having both speed and direction gets you wherever you want to go, fast!
You can go further and faster by learning that math and science are fun as well as fundamental to most of your future endeavors.
Did you know that motorsports like NASCAR is the only sport won or lost through the real-time application of math and science; the same math and science you're learning in school?
Since 2008 Bank of America has partnered with local school districts to share the excitement of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) through motorsports. Students attend speedway events during which NASCAR and engineering professionals interact with them through hands-on, minds-on activities. These Students at the Speedway programs provide the excitement around STEM and show both students and teachers that motorsports is driven by STEM as much as by its stars like Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon.
We are pleased to share the Bank of America Family Activity Workbook. We wish you and your family hours of enjoyable learning together.
Watch the Bank of America 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on the evening of
Saturday, October 16 and use the first activity in this workbook to track the performance of your favorite driver.
