Andrew Raupp, founder and executive director of STEM.org
I love the design of the entire STEM Multi-Sport K-2 curriculum and the instructions are incredibly detailed which would allow almost anyone to pick up the curriculum and use it. Amazing! I also think having the option in some modules to have two shorter sessions or one longer session is a great idea, because depending on the class and the day it could all be up in the air. Lastly, integrating STEM with physical activity is such a great idea and will have a meaningful impact on so many young students.
Julie Fine, Kindergarten teacher
My students had the opportunity to participate in the Soccer STEM program. I have spent two years with most of these students and this experience was the first time I have seen them truly invested and engaged in the learning process. My classroom became student centered, where they were controlling the discussions, and inquiry that followed the modules, not me.
Haley Mercy, Mesquite Junior High School
The students had an amazing time and were still talking about the STEM Basketball program as they exited campus! You are allowing students to experience excitement in learning, and it is so encouraging! Thanks again!
