Extra Training in Addition to High School Classes
"Since starting high school I have gained an appreciation for the level of engineering that goes into making a racecar perform at the highest level it possibly can. I am determined to learn as much as I can. For the past four months I have been working with my school to establish an esports racing team that would teach us all about the engineering aspects of racing and make us competitive for esports competitions. " - Abril Z.
Practice Makes Perfect!
"This is a perfect way to bring all ages together! Our team gets into the spirit of competition when we get time on the sim together. I've watched the Athenian families encourage, coach, laugh, and cheer each other on. This is the perfect way for dads, sons, daughters and moms to find a common bond. Racing does that whether you are at the track or on a sim!" – Loxley Browne, CEO & Founder, DRIVE powered by Athena Racing
My First Time!
"This was exhilarating and scary all at the same time! I learned the basics - gas, brake, turning - and never ran off the track! This is a great way for me to prepare and practice for getting my learner's license... four years from now!" - Tanisi C.
"I love FABcamp because I get to educate myself on mechanics and other STEM topics that I normally would not learn about in school. I also enjoy being able to learn while still having fun, making the camp much more interesting for me."- Amanda K, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
"I think it is important for me to attend this camp and learn more about mechanical engineering because its a skill that is underestimated. The future of transportation is at our fingertips with this camp."- Haley E, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
"I love FABcamp because it is giving me a chance to explore more about STEM. As a high schooler, I am still considering my different career paths, and because STEM has always been one of the top choices for me, this is a great opportunity for enrichment and learning from those experienced in the field."- Heleina C, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
"I LOVE FABcamp because it is so much FUN! We got to meet many new people! I learned so much in just the first week and I am looking forward to what the future weeks will bring me! Thank you to all the hard workers that are making this program available to us girls!"- Akshaya, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
"I love FABcamp because I learn the inner workings of a car, get to see some really cool cars, and have some amazing racers talk to us about their experiences. When I grow up I want to be an engineer, so I can create innovations and build things like cars. This is important to learn about because many of us don't care how and why a car works, and don't know of the parts that make up a car, such as a chassis or powertrain."- Trisha, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
"Why I love FAB: because it is an exciting camp promoting girls and their abilities to develop and grow in more male-dominated fields. FAB is not only inspiring but it gives girls the opportunity to choose different career paths that pursue their own personal interests. FAB is fabulous!!!"- Megan D, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
"When I grow up I want to be a computer science engineer. I think it is important to learn about engineering because it applies to so many aspects of our lives. Also, these days, there are so many jobs related to engineering and it helps to get interested and start learning about it when you are younger."- Mihika, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
I believe participating in Athena Racing was the best way to spend my summer because I learned a multitude of information regarding distinctive career paths, life-lessons, methods of transportation, technological advancements, and mechanics.- Zinia K, FABcamp 2020 Student - July 28, 2020
