We talk a lot about STEAM programs in our schools. There are a lot of great resources and programs out there for schools to utilize. But what about the STEAM that is right in front of us every day? I could name a variety of every day experiences that are teeming with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. But the first thing that stands out to me? NASCAR!

Babette Huitt and Melissa Stirewalt, the program directors of the STEAM program at Charlotte Motor Speedway, join Anchored in Education today to discuss more about their program. Now in their eleventh year of existence, the STEAM program offers year round experiences to students in the many different areas of STEAM and NASCAR. Twice a year the CMS STEAM program hosts a STEAM Expo with 50 different stations, competitions, and other experiences for students.
