Trackhouse Racing To Raise STEM Awareness With CommScope Ignition Program
CommScope has expanded its partnership with NASCAR Cup Series team Trackhouse Racing with the launch of the CommScope Ignition Program. The initiative is designed to leverage the excitement of auto racing to advance STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning across the nation—while also offering solutions to increase access to reliable networks, including public Wi-Fi.
This year’s program will bring CommScope driver Daniel Suárez and the Trackhouse Racing team to schools in Phoenix, Arizona; Austin, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Miami, Florida, during 2022 race weekends. They will be accompanied by NASCAR technology—including CommScope-branded Chevrolet race cars—and WAV, LLC, a provider of wireless network technology.
“We’re here to show them that involvement can be more than just turning kids into drivers. An education in STEM can help them become tomorrow’s motorsports engineers, car designers, and crew chiefs,” said Suárez.
The program includes classroom sessions that illustrate the role of STEM in motorsports and offers broadband network support assessments for schools to help IT teams reliably and securely connect their students online.
