Philadelphia Inquirer: The Urban Youth Racing School is about more than fast cars

The Urban Youth Racing School (UYRS), which connects STEM education to racing with kids in Philadelphia, was featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Don’t let the name fool you. UYRS is about more than fast cars. Founded in 1998, the nonprofit offers science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education to traditionally underserved youth ages 8 to 18. It has grown from a single program using go-kart rides as rewards for good grades in its STEM-heavy classes to one offering multiple curricula, mentoring and, in many cases, opportunities: to win scholarships, to find a passion, and to prepare for the future.

The program was also featured on the new Localist network via the local ABC affiliate in Philadelphia.
