Motorsport joins The Huddle

12 June 2024

The Huddle and Motorsport Australia are proud to announce a new partnership to integrate motorsport into Australian schools

Aligned to the Australian and Victorian curriculum and New South Wales syllabus, GOAL! is a free online motorsport-themed curriculum designed to strengthen students’ knowledge and use of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) from grades 5 to 8.


The new motorsport lessons are now available through The Huddle’s website for teachers eager to engage their students in the classroom.


The lesson plans, designed in collaboration with the Mathematical Association of Victoria, provide opportunities for students to try new and exciting challenges, including designing a race car, engineering a racetrack, building a Supercars Championship team with a limited budget, designing a rally course, designing and building a helmet for an egg and more.


The Huddle’s CEO Cameron McLeod said the opportunity to welcome motorsport to the growing list of sports collaborating with The Huddle to strengthen education and employment for young people is significant.


“Motorsport has a big global footprint and a large following here in Australia,” McLeod said.


“The lesson plans have been designed by teachers, for teachers to help engage their students to learn and apply STEM in the real-world.”


“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the team at Motorsport Australia who have a genuine passion for community and helping to showcase the skills and talents of young people from diverse backgrounds.”


Motorsport Australia CEO Sunil Vohra said the program would be an important asset to further grow the sport’s following, while assisting students with their education.


“The Huddle has a proud history in the community, and we all know the power sport can have with engaging young people in their education,” Vohra said.


“We’re excited to have partnered with The Huddle to deliver this very special education experience.


“These sorts of initiatives are extremely important for the continued growth in motorsport, running alongside our fantastic junior development programs such as FIA Girls On Track and First Gear. Combine that with the clear educational benefits this program provides, and we know this partnership will be a clear winner.”
