STEM Concepts In A Practical Setting

This booming community nestled in the in South Central Kentucky has a rich history of performance racing and sports a robust cradle to career focus on education like no other. Bowling Green’s youth rev their engines through OnTrack, the Chamber’s STEM programming built around performance racing. OnTrack has two components: The Grudge Match and primary school engagement.

Sponsors & Partners

In 2015, the Chamber purchased two second-generation Chevrolet Camaros from Holley Performance Products. The two vehicles were donated to Warren County Area Technology Center and Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College to completely rebuild during the 2015-16 school year.

During this process, industry experts worked closely with students and faculty to aid in the development of the cars and the program’s curriculum, which includes multiple educational disciplines like science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). In May 2017, both cars were featured in the nationally-televised Mecum Automotive Auction in Indianapolis, Indiana, raising $74,000 and securing the future sustainability of the OnTrack program.
