“If you love motorsports or have a kid who LOVES cars, NASCAR has an amazing way to share that passion with your kids, thru NASCAR Acceleration Nation. The website and app, which is available on Android and iPhone, features fun games, info on races, details on cars, and learning materials about the science of racing!”
Kids can learn about the science of speed and more through videos on the website and app. As a homeschooling mom, I was super excited to find out that I can teach both of sons who are 2 and 5 years old. How Science works in the different ways NASCAR drivers drive, and later I can also incorporate a bit of Physics and law of motion!
I enjoy watching NASCAR especially when it comes to the Daytona 500 I mean that is in our backyard! I hope to take the boys when they are a bit older, they have been fond of race cars, ever since they saw Pixar’s Cars 3 so when I found out about the app I was super excited. They could learn all about the drivers, the cars that they drive, and about the different infrastructures from each of the tracks. They even throw in a little bit of Geometry in the mix when talking about the track angles.
Another thing that I like about this app is the fact that I can download it on my oldest kindle, and not have to worry about anyone getting on the app and talking to him. I am always fearful as a mom what I download especially with social media because you never know who your kids could be speaking to on the other end.
Both of my kids enjoy the Kids games on the app probably their favorite games are the Raceflex and the NASCAR Bingo game. I have to admit I have snuck in a few plays myself, after a long day it’s a great way to relieve stress! One of the cool things is that if you have older kids they actually would benefit from the Flashcard games, it helps with Math reinforcement by doing Math equations.
I limit what my kids watch, and while my oldest begs me to let him watch Youtube. I prefer him to watch the videos on the app they are kid-friendly, and funny. My kids love watching other kids interview some of the racers, do challenges, and see some of the other videos on the app.
If you have a phone or a tablet you can download the Acceleration Nation app today at the App Store or Google Play Store.
