With many children and families spending time being ‘healthy at home,’ the National Corvette Museum has debuted a free video series, offering educational and fun content for all ages. Vettecademy offers topics related to Corvette, the Museum and other automotive areas with a new video debuting each weekday on the Museum’s Facebook page and YouTube.
“Many museums across the country are offering free virtual content to stay engaged with their audience while attracting from new fans,” said Dr. Sean Preston, President and CEO of the National Corvette Museum. “As a nonprofit foundation, our mission is to educate the public. We developed these videos to not only provide educational content, but also be entertaining and engaging.”
Thus far, topics for the episodes have included Corvette Generations, the Museum’s Sinkhole and ME-chanics: How to Change a Tire. While the series is geared towards school-aged children, adults are encourage to tune-in, too. Episodes go live Monday through Friday at 10am CT, and past episodes are available on both platforms, as well as embedded on the Museum’s website.
For Corvette enthusiasts wanting even more deep dives into the history of America’s iconic sports car, the Museum is launching a second video series entitled Fully Vetted. Debuting on Tuesday, March 24 around 4pm CT, the videos will feature Museum Director of Collections / Curator Derek E. Moore and Museum Historical Media Coordinator Bob Bubnis who will ‘decode Corvette history.’
“Our Fully Vetted series is designed to provide a digital touch-point to Corvette fans worldwide while also offering educational and entertaining content for those wanting to soak up as much Corvette information as possible,” shared Sean. “Derek and Bob will share in-depth stories, the lore behind the brand, and a behind the scenes view of America’s Sports Car.”
Fully Vetted was originally planned to be a fee-based series, but has since been deemed as free content. “We decided to give the content away as a ‘thank you’ to those who have supported the Museum, but definitely welcome tax-deductible donations to help us continue providing educational content through these challenging times,” added Sean.
Currently, Fully Vetted will have new episodes on Tuesdays and Thursdays around 4pm CT. Museum members can log into their account to view the videos, and non-members can sign up for a free account on the Museum’s website to view the content.
