Four Girl Scouts Councils, Tropical Florida, Southeastern Michigan, Northeast Texas, and Northern New Jersey, have partnered with Ford, and participated in the Girls Fast Track Race program. The program provides a hands-on learning experience for 200 girls from each district, allowing them to learn about the automotive engineering industry, and build their own track race cars.
Ford's commitment to STEAM education corresponds with their desire to inspire and educate young students. This collaboration is just one of the many programs now being offered through www.fordsteamexperience.com. Visit the website to learn more about programs near you!
“We believe that all young children have an aptitude for technical subjects – what’s often lacking is the encouragement and additional support to succeed,” Tracy Magee, Ford primary brand experiential manager said. “Ford is deeply committed to education and through creative programs such as the Girls’ Fast Track Races, we hope to spark excitement among the youth and inspire them to pursue future careers in high-tech fields.”
Ford Motor Company's collaboration with Girl Scouts Councils across America and their ongoing effort to promote STEAM related education is exciting and important for our youngest generation. With help and encouragement from Ford, these young students will be inspired to pursue high-tech career paths. At Velde Ford Pekin, we think this partnership is a great testimony to Ford's commitment to bettering our communities.
