“OUTSTANDING ENGINEERING PROJECT OF THE YEAR”
AWARDED BY THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY ENGINEERING COUNCIL, 2020
DRIVE change. DRIVE education. DRIVE success.
Athena Racing provides young girls with a solid foundation of life skills presented through a STEM-focused curriculum to advance careers in the male-dominated automotive, motorsport, and transportation industries.
Athena Racing provides FREE online programs to female students in middle & high school.
100% REAL LIFE
We are a STEM education program for girls in middle school and high school who are interested in discovering more about career paths in the transportation industries related to cars, airplanes, rockets, boats, rail, trucks, EV in the specialties of engineering, robotics, design, mechanics, fabrication and business.
From wrenching to driving to entrepreneurship, the career paths for girls are limitless…they just haven’t been exposed to the possibilities….yet.
As an extra-curricular activity, inclusion in this program benefits the team members
Our program teaches 15 different Education Tracks providing the essential life skills and career development needed to succeed.
We are creating a safe space for young girls to try new things, expand their knowledge, and be themselves. After all, how do you know if you are on the right career track until you get your hands dirty?
DIRECT FROM OUR MEMBERS
LOVE FOR ATHENA
“All of Athena Racing’s events offer unique experiences or connections you seriously can’t find elsewhere. Between meeting the numerous incredible guests at FABCamp, to learning new skills in the workshops, Athena Racing truly connects and prepares you for these industries. The more you put into the program, attending events and getting involved, the more you’ll get out of it.”
~Shayne, Student Advisory Board President
“I LOVE FAB Camp because it is so much FUN! We got to meet many new people! I learned so much in just the first week and I am looking forward to what the future weeks will bring me! Thank you to all the hard workers that are making this program available to us girls!”
~Akshaya, FABcamper & Member
“We were very excited to learn about Athena racing and how young girls are encouraged here to believe in themselves and achieve something that they never thought they could or they feared to try. We are hopeful that our daughter will build confidence, strength, strategy and skill that help her find a hero in herself and be encouraged to become a future leader.”
~Parents of Surahbi, FABcamper & Member
“First of all – I am blown away by how much you have accomplished Loxley – and goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway – YOU ARE SUCH AN INSPIRATION!!!!!! What you have built and are continuing to build for these girls is life altering. As I said – this is legendary stuff! I can’t begin to tell you have this has lit a fire in me like nothing else! The education partnering program is especially important for my vision of the Socrates Center.”
–Laura Flanagan, owner of Socrates Center in Costa Rica, location of the 2023 Leadership Retreat for Athena Racing

Inspiration surrounds us in our daily life. Do you pay attention to the signs?
Take a break from your electronics and “be bored” for a bit. Give your brain time to relax as you take a walk in nature, listen to music, take a power nap, or cut the grass. Do the “meaningless task” that doesn’t require much thought, but will allow your brain a chance to relax…and get inspired!
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, just get started.
