This past summer, Barrett-Jackson partnered with SciTech Institute to support an automotive STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) initiative for Arizona students. Called Gearing Towards the Future, the culmination of this partnership will be on display at STEM Fest during Barrett-Jackson’s auction in Scottsdale in January 2023.
You may be wondering why your favorite automotive auction has an interest in education fundamentals? For the answer, ClassicCars.com Journal chatted with the Vice President of Corporate Sponsorships for Barrett-Jackson, Peter Lubell.
Barrett-Jackson has been a leader in collector car auctions for over 50 years, and what better way to give back to the community than by engendering the interests of youths in the “automotive arts” by helping develop the next generation of automotive engineers and technicians? Sights are set beyond metropolitan Phoenix, though, as the goal is to expand to other markets where Barrett-Jackson has a presence.
