Many of the technologies used in NASCAR are the same as those used in space travel, and many of the forces that keep a plane in the air also keep a racecar on the road. Join the STEM in 30 crew as they look at the crossover between these forces and technology.
The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s STEM in 30 series of live, fast-paced, 30-minute webcasts are designed to increase interest and engagement in STEM for students. This episode, aired live from the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina, examines how stock car racing and spaceflight use some of the same technologies and are subject to some of the same forces of nature.
