Bridging the Gap between Science and MotoGP™
Updated: Sep 25, 2020
Developed in partnership with STEM Hub and the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC), the Science of MotoGP™ booklet inspires young minds to take up science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects and ultimately STEM careers.
The booklet was designed for students in grades 6 to 9, and explores some of the laws of physics involved in motorcycle racing, the technology behind the rider's safety gear, and how 4-stroke pistons work. The booklet also examines the different skills and training needed by people in racing careers and introduces readers to past Aussie winners. The Science of MotoGP™ booklet also incorporates the Australian Education Curriculum allowing teachers to utilise the content for classroom exercise planning.
Launched at the 2019 Pramac Generac Australian Motorcylce Grand Prix at Phillip Island the booklet was a huge hit amongst students, teachers and parents.
STEM Hub's team had the pleasure of meeting World Champions, Wayne Gardner, Giacomo Agostini, and Freddie Spencer, and to be witness to world class racers pushing their machines to the limit.
STEM Hub's mission to rally up the next generation to take up STEM studies in droves.
We’re on a mission to inspire the next generations to embrace STEM learning. Our educational booklets bring STEM into the real world allowing STEM concepts to be visualised in a context that is relatable, fun and most importantly, relevant. We want current STEM lovers to be even more inspired but we've got our sights set on those students who think STEM subjects are too hard, and boring.
AGPC's partnership with STEM Hub focuses on bringing the innovation, technology, and the foundations of science and mathematics principles to the forefront. With the increasing growth of interest in Australian motorsports from grassroots to the elite level, MotoGP™ is a brilliant way to inspire our next generation to become future innovators and disruptors.
