UWG Students Get Young Racing Fans Revved Up about STEM
What do NASA and NASCAR have in common? Plenty. Just ask Audrey Quartey-Lynch and Martina Smith, two students from the University of West Georgia’s UTeach program who recently led workshops at NASA’s Rockets 2 Racecars (R2R) event at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March. R2R is an event in collaboration with Jimmie Johnson Racing where science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) converge to teach the parallels between aerospace and racing science.
