FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Automotive Design – Viewers learn that the Penske Racing Team includes 105 people, and a range of careers that few people know about. In rare footage from the General Motors Advanced Concepts Center, viewers watch a concept car taking form, from sketch to finished model. Designers agree that if you love cars, are willing to work hard, and like art and engineering, automotive design could be the field for you. Classroom guest: Indy 500 champion Danny Sullivan.
