Athena Racing Member?

Becoming Athenian

We empower the young girls who are the “nerds,” the “game-changers,” the “status quo demolishers”.

Our intensive online program gives girls a community of like-minded, design-creating, engineering-thinking, STEM-loving peers. During our online events our students experience a variety of topics, meet outstanding STEM role models, and have new experiences outside of their bubble where they will learn a multitude of skills that will benefit them throughout life.

Build your portfolio

Learning, collaborating, and then applying newfound knowledge in a hands-on application is a life changing experience! Suddenly you can connect the dots from what you read in your textbooks. The lectures that your teachers gave in the classroom begin to resonate and what was once mere theory has practical application.

Who knew that science, technology, engineering, and math could become influencer favorites?!? Once you fabricate a machine from scratch, test the physics of its capabilities, describe your experience to the media, then, yes you will intimately know the connections and experience how much fun it is! 

Achieve your goals

Our members learn essential life skills along with gaining career development readiness that puts our members years ahead of their peers. Our online Courses portal is the shortcut to success in business, marketing, leadership, public speaking and more!

Loxley started this organization for the young girls who want to learn. Those who value the hands-on experience that they will gain. She and the STEM role models who are mentoring and guiding our Athenians understand the importance of sharing knowledge. The adults – women and men –  involved in Athena Racing understand the need to provide a safe, supportive atmosphere for these curious young minds to grow and accomplish major feats!

Starting With the End Result in Mind

Why Now?

We are “Racing to Build the Future” at Athena Racing through Character, Courage, Confidence, and Continuity Programs that encourage critical thinking, develop needed business assets, and foster connections to peers.

It can be a very daunting task as a young girl knowing that you have the skills and the abilities, but are surrounded by old mindsets and exhaustive biases.

It’s time for there to be equal representation in all industries, all work spaces, and around all conference tables.

Athena Racing is one of the most amazing opportunities out there. It allows me to speak with knowledgeable, inspiring role models who have been more than happy to help answer any career path questions. It allows me to fine tune real world skills and learn about entrepreneurship, collaboration, business, planning, and more. It connects me with an abundance of resources to help prepare me for life after high school and college. I especially love the amazing group we have on the Student Advisory Board, and I am always inspired by each and every one of the members through their drive to succeed and learn.

Athena Racing is so important to me because they have helped me grow into a more confident person! I get to meet and work with STEM role models and learn more about the different jobs related to STEM! One of my favorite quotes was said by Sreeja Nair of Qualcomm,  “You can lead from any chair.” I really enjoyed it because it made me realize that I don’t need to wait until I have more power to achieve what I want. I realized, if I really wanted, I could make anything possible. I could make use of what I have and achieve great things in life. From a girl’s perspective, this means a lot, because not many women work in stem related jobs. With Athena Racing, we get to experience different fields and find out what our interests are. Everyone in Athena Racing is so kind and they all help me grow!

~Akshaya, Student Advisory Board President 2022-23

Athena Racing is important to me because it gives me an experience that nothing else can. It is an amazing opportunity for me to learn about working life, experience entrepreneurship, learn about STEM job opportunities, and meet business role models. I am also starting to explore the world from different perspectives. The exposure to a new group of friends, outside of school, gives me the chance for friendships that  may last a lifetime.

~Tanisi, Student Advisory Board Secretary 2021-22

Athena Racing is important to me because it helps spread awareness about girls in STEM, and empowers us to follow our dreams. This is important because often, girls, in particular, don’t have the opportunity to unleash their full potential and are not exposed to the various career paths that are available.

~Anaya, Student Advisory Board 2021-22

Athena Racing is important to me because I am really going places with it. Being an active Athenian, I know I will have better clarity of the future, collaborate with others well and be prepared for things in the future I didn’t even know existed. In other words, ” I will be light years beyond my peers” as Ms. Loxley says, and she is right. Even though I have only been in this program for some time I have already felt the impact. I feel inspired to do nearly everything, I am no longer afraid to speak to someone new, or ask for help. I even learned how to do an elevator pitch!
