Ford Motor Company Collaborates with Girl Scouts of America

PEKIN, Ill., – Ford Motor Company's new collaboration with Girl Scouts Councils is creating encouraging atmospheres for young girls to explore science, technology, engineering, arts, and math related fields (STEAM). By introducing elementary school students to the Girls Fast Track Race program, collaborators feel it will provide girls with a creative environment to learn about high tech fields of study.

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.

“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.
