Soar to new heights

Ford is always looking for new ways to help students embrace their education and soar to new heights. This time, the American automaker turned to the Girl Scouts in states from around the country. The Ford Girls’ Fast Track Races help foster student interest in engineering and design to help them become the best they can be!

The Girls’ Fast Track Races aim to incorporate the concepts of engineering design, like aerodynamics, weight distribution, and, of course, color combinations into a fun-filled event. Ford reached out to hundreds of Girl Scouts from New Jersey, Miami, Dallas, and Detroit with an offer they couldn’t refuse.

The Race is on

The 2016 Girls’ Fast Track Races included four cars built by the Girl Scouts themselves, plus Ford’s added $5,000 in prizes. The resounding success of the 2016 races has encouraged the automaker to bring the races back for 2017 too! Four Girl Scout councils will create their own cars and put them to the test in a head-to-head competition where fun takes precedence over crossing the finish line first.

Ford has been nurturing student interest in STEM fields since 1913. The Girls’ Fast Track Races are just the latest event to introduce America’s youth to the concepts of engineering and design.

We here at Gurley Motor Company are proud to see Ford supporting America’s youth!
