Model railroading is uniquely primed for doing educational outreach today, says Stacey Walthers Naffah, President of Milwaukee-based Walthers. Walthers is a major model railroading company, distributing and manufacturing products for hobbyists around the world. Stacey discusses how the industry has a big opportunity to add to K-12 education, in history, science, technology, engineering, art, and math, whether it involves wifi-controlled trains or teaching kids to properly scale down 3D models. She shares that Walthers is looking for more ideas about how to partner with educators.
