Growing up in the South, NASCAR was a big deal. Favorite drivers were discussed over dinner at family gatherings. Relatives turned on the race after dinner to see who would win. The Daytona 500 was not to be missed. Now there is a new way for kids to enjoy NASCAR. If you are a NASCAR fan, love motorsports, or have a kid who loves cars, you need to try NASCAR Acceleration Nation with your child.
This is a partnered post with NASCAR Acceleration Nation. All opinions are mine.
What is NASCAR Acceleration Nation? It’s a website and app, designed especially for kids, that is available on Android and iPhone. It’s filled with fun games, information on races, details on cars, exclusive NASCAR videos and activities. Kids can learn about their favorite NASCAR drivers, tracks and more on both platforms. Both the AccelerationNation.com website and the Acceleration Nation app are free.
One of my favorite things about the Acceleration Nation website is the learning materials about the science of racing. This is great for homeschoolers and teachers too. What better way to get a junior sports fan interested in science than learning about the science of racing?NASCAR Acceleration Nation is a way for kids to have fun learning about NASCAR through science, technology, and innovation. Of course, the kids will think they are just playing games and watching videos. Why bother to tell them they are learning STEM skills, the science of speed and more?
There are two units available for the fifth, sixth and seventh grades. Teachers can download four lesson units for both aerodynamics and energy. Parents will be glad to know that Acceleration Nation is a safe environment. There is no way for members to contact, message or interact with each other, and no way to exchange information with other members in any way.
You can download the FREE Acceleration Nation app today at the App Store or Google Play Store. And, if you decide to attend a race, kids twelve and under are FREE to all NASCAR XFINITY and Camping World Truck races. If you are trying to make learning fun, the Acceleration Nation is the place to be!
