On Saturday, the exhibit “Hot Wheels™: Race to Win™” opened at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The interactive exhibit is designed to foster kids interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers, a term that has recently gained attention in hopes of encouraging not only boys to pursue jobs in the math and science field but also girls.
“We had the privilege of becoming part of the exhibit through our sponsorship of John Force Racing,” said WELD president and CEO Norm Young. “We are excited to be a part of an exhibit that features the most famous toy vehicles for children and encourages them to pursue scientific and automotive careers.”
This display shows the thrills of racing by guiding kids through the investigative process that happens when designing race cars and includes WELD Racing’s revolutionary, on-piece forged wheels that are used by JFR, the Delta-1. Hot Wheels die-cast cars come into play to give kids a chance to collaborate, build, and test the world’s fastest and safest cars. With an authentic experience, the interactive display gives kids and their families a chance to experience the innovation behind racing power, performance, and speed and encourage future interest in pursuing careers in the industry.
