STEM Meets Sports

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. These areas of study can be found thoroughly embedded in the world of sports. Through both STEM and sport we can help many kids feel empowered an passionate about the experiences they encounter in their everyday life.

Through our partnership with the Lyda Hill Foundation we are able to further explore the intersection of STEM in Sport.
