SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS
Andretti Thrill Park has teamed up with Larsen Motorsports and their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiative. These comic books are for teaching students about the science behind a turn by creating a fun educational alternative to optimize the learning experience.
