Blazing Trails 501(c)3 Educational Outreach is all about helping the next generation achieve their dreams. Blazing Trails happens at schools, at our shop, at the race tracks, and now virtually online! Our headquarters is located in the Larsen Motorsports high performance vehicle facility in Brevard County, Florida. The Blazing Trails program gives participants the opportunity to learn about and explore various career opportunities while gaining a new perspective on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Their imagination will be sparked by taking what they acquire in the classroom and applying it to real-world experiences. Students and educators will get “hands on” with activities geared towards a fast-paced career. From Concept, Design, Engineering, Fabrication, Problem Solving, Graphic Arts, Business, and Human Factors, it takes a team to make it happen. This will be an experience of a lifetime. It’s time to stop sitting back and watching the action-- put yourself in the driver's seat and Blaze your own Trail!!!
Life moves fast, 280 mph fast, and the Larsen Motorsports team is ready to take you along for the ride! So sit down, strap in, and buckle up because this is about to take you on a journey with the team as we live our #JetLife and Play With Fire!
