This is a sponsored post to talk about how to incorporate motorsports into homeschooling, however all opinions are my own.
My husband loves cars, especially fast cars, so naturally he hopes our children develop a love of race cars too. He actually had a chance to drive a supercar a few years ago and we took all of the kids along to watch. That’s not something we can do very often, luckily though, there’s NASCAR, which lets our family enjoy motorsports all year long.
If you love motorsports or have a kid who LOVES cars, NASCAR has an amazing new way to share that passion with your kids, thru NASCAR Acceleration Nation. The website and app (which is available for FREE on Android and iPhone) features fun games, info on races, details on cars, and learning materials about the science of racing!
One of the reasons my husband and I chose to homeschool is because we believe that kids learn best when they’re having fun — I love that that’s the principle at the heart of NASCAR Acceleration Nation. Educational information paired with the fun of NASCAR can challenge your child to think, learn, and have fun all at the same time!
About NASCAR Acceleration Nation
NASCAR Acceleration Nation is a program designed to help kids learn all about the world of NASCAR through unique science, technology and innovation-inspired content. Acceleration Nation website is the program’s free digital hub. The site features exclusive NASCAR videos, games and activities created especially for kids. NASCAR Acceleration Nation is a safe environment with zero social functionality. 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. Members can download activities for themselves and their friends, but all group activity is done offline and outside of Acceleration Nation website. I am so thrilled knowing this game is safe for my kids to play!
How Does Acceleration Nation Help Kids Learn?
I’m glad you asked! At Acceleration Nation, kids can learn about NASCAR drivers, tracks and more. Kids can also learn about the science of speed and more through videos on the website and app. The website and app will also help them practice math skills and improve hand-eye coordination, among other other things. There are so many educational opportunities!
I recently downloaded the app and my kids have been fighting over whose turn it is to play. They have loved designing their own vehicle and then enjoying the thrill of racing them! I like seeing them learn as they play! Now they are eager to go see a race in person. Since kids 12 and under are FREE to all NASCAR XFINITY & Camping World Truck races, we’re hoping to attend a race with them soon!
I DID mention a giveaway too! Right now, there’s a fantastic giveaway with THREE prizes! A 1st prize of $400, 2nd prize of $150, and 3rd prize of $75 worth of NASCAR gift cards. It is open to residents of US & Canada, and ends Sept 8th, 2017. If you’d like a chance to win, just enter using the Rafflecopter entry form below. Good luck!
