What does a 1 of 4 1931 Studebaker Commander and a 1976 Ferrari built for SCCA racing have in common? They're both part of the Genius Garage Racing Team program for college students in Bowling Green, Ohio

Genius Garage was created to bridge the gap from academia to industry giving students with spark an opportunity to grow and prove their worth to potential employers. This gives them the best possible transition from the academic world to their professional careers.

Students from academic backgrounds ranging from engineering to fine art, music, business, and journalism prep for competitions, going on field trips, and get an emphasis on team building and learning from mentors.

However, with the addition of two new programs, Genius Garage expanded into both the Aerospace and Automotive Design industries.

Genius Garage is run by volunteer professional mentors, and has volunteers, speakers, and leaders with a range from global CEOs to sports professionals, fighter pilots, racing engineers, members of Interpol, entrepreneurs, and even Chief of Staff to Sir Winston Churchill.
