SEMA Education Participates in Auto Club Speedway’s Student STEM Day

By Katie Hurst

SEMA partnered with the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, and San Bernardino Community College School Board to produce a Student STEM Day at the track. The event was held Friday, February 28, where 500 middle school students come out for a day of automotive-related learning, experiences and hands-on STEM activities from various vendors.

The goal of the annual event is to bring awareness to STEM-based careers in motorsports while providing a positive automotive experience that leaves a lasting impression on the young students. The list of participating vendors who engaged with the students through hands-on activities included:

  • Auto Club Speedway
  • SEMA Education
  • Hot Rodders of Tomorrow
  • Petersen Museum
  • Norco College
  • Victor Valley College
  • Riverside City College
  • Mt. San Jacinto College

The students also got the opportunity to hear inspirational accounts of how industry professionals pursued their automotive passion through their careers. Jarod DeAnda, the voice of Formula DRIFT, Sara Morosan of LGE-CTS Motorsports and Myles Kovacs of DUB Magazine, volunteered their time as panelists to motivate the students to pursue their dreams.
