05 Mar Cadwallader Middle School Students Explore STEM Principles At NASCAR
In partnership with Fuel for Success, Clark County School District Police Department (CCSD PD), and NASCAR, Cadwallader Middle School students took a deep dive into STEM education and how it relates to the racing industry. Eight-grade students spent several weeks understanding force and motion, integrating their learning as they designed and built model race cars. CCSD PD played a major role in mentoring participating students and providing safety presentations.
A final Race Day event was held at the school to determine the top-performing vehicle models. The top racing students were escorted to the Pennzoil 400 race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway by CCSD PD. The students’ NASCAR visit was complete with a behind-the-scenes tour, meet and greets with professional drivers and crew, and tickets to attend the race.
