Curriculum: Science of Sports

The Science of Sports content invites children to explore the role of science, technology, engineering, and math in sports. Through active, hands-on learning, students discover that athletes need to be physically fit, mentally fit, and properly equipped to excel. At the same time, students learn how athletes are supported by a broad and diverse network of STEM professionals. Most kids know that athletic ability leads to success in sports. The Science of Sports program shows them that science is another way to get in the game.
